Tennis: Running Backhand and Rally

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Coach, 4 players, and a basket of balls.

Player 1 starts on the tramlines opposite the coach.

Coach feeds the ball across the court for player 1 to run on to and hit a deep running backhand to player 2.

A rally continues until a point is won.

Player 1 retreats to their starting position, player 2 joins the queue, and player 3 joins the drill.

Repeat the drill until all players have played player 1.

Rotate players and repeat the drill.

COACHING POINTS

Players footwork to be quick to meet the ball.

Meet the ball on the rise or the top of the bounce.

Recover to the starting position after the rally.
