Tennis: Don't Miss The Overhead

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands at the net.
  • Coach stands on the baseline on the deuce side and they rally together.
  • Coach hits all the balls up and the player hits overheads back to the deuce side.

COACHING POINTS

  • Player works on consistency of the overhead shot.
  • By using rallying repetition in a given direction, the player is able to repeat quality shots without mistakes.
  • It is important to remember to use crossover steps while moving back and also to hit the ball at the highest possible point of contact.
  • Coach should set a specific number of balls in the rally to help players make proper tactical decisions according to different lobs they get.
