Tennis: Serve and hit the low return

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

The player hits a serve to either the ad or deuce side. The coach, who is in front of the player, then feeds him/her a low ball.

The player has to react quickly after the serve and hit consistently low and flat returns over the net.

COACHING POINTS

Coach should work with the players to make sure that they know what to do when the return is deep.

In this exercise the coach feeds a low ball to challenge the player's footwork and reaction skills.

It is important that the coach throws from different angles to make it more realistic and more difficult for the athlete.
