Tennis Drill Demonstration


The coach stands at the centre of the court at the net. He/she then feeds the ball to the player's ad side and lifts the racquet up above their head.

The player has to move toward the ball and hit a backhand lob cross court. The aim of this drill is for the player to get the ball to pass above the coach's racquet.

Coaching points

In this drill the player works on his/her backhand lob.

The coach's racquet is a good point of reference to get immediate feedback about how well executed the previous shot was and whether the player needs to adjust their foot position or angle of the raquet.
