Tennis Drill Demonstration


  • Both player and coach stand on their ad side.
  • Player rallies with coach using pattern based on backhand topspin cross-court, backhand slice cross-court and forehand down the line.

Coaching points

  • In this drill the player improves different strokes from the baseline and learns how to maintain good quality shots whilst hitting into the same spot on the court.
  • Placing different shots with different spins into rival’s backhand is a good way to check the opponent’s consistency and patience.
  • Only well-prepared rivals will be able to maintain a good rally without taking too much risk after hitting a few backhands in a row.
  • For more advanced players the coach can make them play the point out after executing a tactical pattern without a mistake.
