Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Player serves the ball, and immediately after serving, the coach tosses a deep ball into player's body. The player's goal is to move back and hit with control.

Coaching points

Common mistakes among young players are related to the next shot after the serve. Players are not ready to react quickly because they don't train this aspect so that is why they miss a lot of balls that are more demanding. In this exercise, player works on quick recovery and early awareness after the serve. Coach should emphasise proper footwork while moving back (crossover steps).
