Tennis Drill Demonstration


  • Coach and player rally through the center of the court.
  • Player has to alternate hitting forehand and backhand.

Coaching points

  • The rule to alternate forehand and backhand forces players to maintain sharp focus and also to constantly adapt to the incoming ball.
  • Player learns how to move to/around the ball and hit effectively and also how to achieve good quality while moving away from the ball.
  • These skills are especially necessary on fast surfaces when players can’t always achieve perfect position to hit the ball.
  • For more advanced players coach can set up the zone and set number of balls to be hit.
