Tennis: Continuous overhead

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands at the net.
  • Coach quickly feeds high balls in a row.
  • Player executes overhead after overhead without too much time between them.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on adaptation while hitting overheads. Quick feed from the coach forces player to work much harder with setting up positions as also puts more emphasis on racquet acceleration to be able to get on time with proper point of contact. All these requirements won't be met without solid focus on the task so technical, physical and mental abilities are improved at the same time. Coach should vary volume and intensity of own feed to meet player's level of advancement but to remember to always challenge player a little higher than his actual level.
