Tennis: Forehand recovery

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

DESCRIPTION

Coach feeds the ball to the forehand side, with the player just behind the baseline.

Player runs out, hits one forehand, recovers their position to the middle and runs out for a second and third time. After the third time they go past the middle as though the next shot is coming to their backhand.

For the first two shots they hit the ball crosscourt and then the last one down the line.

COACHING POINTS

  • Get back to position quickly, ready for the next shot

  • Split step (jump the legs out) then run - this makes players centrally balanced so that they don't have all their weight on one side and are prepared to push left or right. It gets them ready so that they can react and read the ball.
