Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The coach feeds balls from the basket. The first one the player hits a forehand cross court, before running to the other side and hitting a forehand inside out. The final shot is from the other side and is a winner down the line.

Coaching points

Many players practice running around the backhand to win the point but they don't spend enough time on improving skills that are responsible for responding to the shots that are played to the open area (forehand side). Hitting inside out or inside in forehand is a great weapon to win the point but many times we can be pushed to the challenging situation while opening the right side of the court. Combining forehand from the backhand side and running forehand is a necessity to learn how to successfully build the game around our weapons.
