Tennis: Ball Sidestepping

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

DESCRIPTION

Both players side step along the tramlines throwing the ball (underarm)to each other until they reach the net and then return to the baseline doing the same thing. Catching the ball after one bounce is a good start.

COACHING POINTS

  • Depending on the level, try catching the ball with no bounce or throwing 2 balls simultaneously.
  • Beginners start by rolling the ball to each other.
