Tennis: Over the Shoulder

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

DESCRIPTION

Players stand on the base line, with one player in front of another.

Player two (the player without the ball) has their back to their partner.

Player 1 can throw the ball when they like. As soon as player 2 sees the ball coming over their head they must react and move to catch it (preferably its second bounce) and then return to their partner in order to repeat.

COACHING POINTS

Repeat 8 times before swapping.

Player 1 should not become rhythmic in their throwing as this will make things too easy for the catcher.
