Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player stands facing the back fence.

Player imitates serving motion. Player reaches as high as she can with the racquet and touches the fence with the top edge.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, player works on high point of contact. Using the back fence is a helpful tool that provides immediate feedback for the player. Players who are well coordinated can add leg action to reach the higher spots on the fence.

A high point of contact is a major problem for many beginners. Being able to "reach up" is a first step to avoid net-mistakes and make more serves in.

Coach should explain to players that higher they hit, the better the chance they will clear the net so this visual cue can help players to correct this technical flaw.
