Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The player tosses the ball up and leaves the non-dominant hand in the air. Ball should drop into the player's hand.

Coaching points

Toss can be a limiting factor in player's serving accuracy. Player's ability to toss the ball into the proper spot is a necessity to achieve high consistency in this shot. Player has to learn when to make a decision to let the ball drop and start the action all over again.

In this particular exercise, the player works on 2 aspects at the same time. Firstly, the player learns how to toss properly by having a visual target (non-dominant hand) for the ball. Secondly, the player makes a habit to keep shoulders alignment (straight line between both shoulders).
