Tennis: Crosscourt theory

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Purpose:

Teaches players when to keep ball in the same direction and when to change and that players need to recover position towards centre of court.

 

Players rally 4 balls crosscourt from either corner. Then the point is "live". Play to 11 points

COACHING POINTS

Court is longer crosscourt (82.5ft compared to 78ft)

Net is lower in centre  (3ft compared to 3ft 6 in)

 

Therefore playing crosscourt will give you longer to recover if the opposition has put you out of position

Crosscourt gives the opportunity to build width and depth to then hit down the line.

Players need to know when to pick the down the line shot
