Tennis: Drop And Run

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands in one corner of the court, with the coach on the opposite side of the baseline.

The coach drops the ball from shoulder height and the player must sprint across the baseline and hit the ball, before returning to their starting position.

COACHING POINTS

This exercise is a for any serious tennis player. Tennis is all about running from one corner to the other and being able to hit the ball successfully while controlling balance. Running the full width of the court can be challenging for many players so coach should prepare the right amount of sets. This drill is a great opportunity to observe how execution of the given stroke is related to the player's fatigue.

PROGRESSION

For more advanced players, coach can drop the ball from the lower height or make the distance bigger between player and coach.
