Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player stands on the ad side with a cone in hand. Coach serves from the ad side. Player then catches the ball inside the cone and throws it over the net.

During the first few tennis lessons, it can be too hard for kids to return the ball with the racquet. So the coach has to adapt to this situation and still improve returning skills; using a cone is a great opportunity to imitate a returning environment and improve receiving abilities.

In this drill, player works mostly on receiving skills. Catching the ball in the cone demands from the player to move to the proper position and observe the ball at the same time. Both of these skills are required later to successfully hit the ball with the racquet so it is a good introduction for kids.
