Tennis: Answer the serve

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Coach serves from the deuce side. The player then hits a cross-court forehand return.

COACHING POINTS

If we are working on serving skills, we can't forget about the returning skills too. Each points starts from serve or return, so both abilities have to be taught at the young age.

In this drill, player works on returning skills. Control and placement are priorities to teach players how to be consistent from the first shot. To make it more competitive, coach can give one point for each good cross-court return and see who the best returner is.
