Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

After successful hit into the zone, the player moves forward between service line and baseline, and hits another return. After successful hit into the zone, the player moves forward to the service line to execute another return.

Coaching points

Return is one of the most important strokes in modern tennis. Quick reaction and control of the stroke are skills that should be developed from the early stages of tennis development to guarantee positive results in the future.

In this drill, the player works on return from different areas on the court. Moving closer to the serves makes this task really difficult. Players have to focus on control instead of the power to achieve the goal.
