Tennis: Eliminate unnecessary backswing

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

DESCRIPTION

Player stands close to the net, but facing toward the back of the court.

The player then plays a backhand return without touching the net. The main emphasis of this drill is to shorten your player's backswing.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player learns how to shorten his/her backswing. The net is a great tool that gives an immediate feedback as to whether the backswing is too short or long.

PROGRESSION

After the player's successfully playing of the shot, the coach should feed him/her some balls from the same side of the court before moving on to regular serves across the net.
