Tennis: Hitting forehands from the backhand corner

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

Players are working in groups of three.

Player 1 is the 'working' player and players 2 and 3 are feeding the ball.

Player 1 must hit only forehands and must hit one shot inside out to player 3 and one shot inside in to player 2.

Player 2 hits forehands line, player 3 hits backhands cross.

COACHING POINTS

Wherever the ball lands, it is player 1's job to hit a forehand off the shot.

They must do so even if it is unrealistic - for the purpose of the drill and to encourage players to get used to running around their backhands to hit forehands.

Players 2 and 3 should be encouraged to keep their intensity up even though they are feeding and working in a half court.

In this drill you should be looking for fast feet and a high work rate from all players.

Rotate positions after 5 minutes.
