Tennis: Hitting on the Rise

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION


Player stays on the baseline. Cones are set behind the player. Coach feeds deep higher balls. Player takes the ball on the rise and hits aggressively. Cones prevents the player from moving back.

 

COACHING POINTS


In this drill player works on hitting on the raise. This technical aspect requires good coordination and strength so coach should implement specific physical exercises on a daily basis to supplement this process. Coach should teach players to focus on proper timing because hitting on the rise can’t be performed with regular backswing. Players have to adjust to the incoming ball by shortening the racquet preparation and generating more power from the all body parts than from the racquet.
