Tennis: Ripping it!

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

The coach feeds each player 5 easy balls anywhere inside the service boxes.

The player must 'rip' every single ball, with 100% intensity, swinging freely and keeping the racquet head speed fast through each and every ball.

These are 'put away' balls, the last shot of a rally and must be buried into the court to give the opponent no chance of getting to it.

COACHING POINTS

Players can be encouraged to take the ball at the top of the bounce, however it is useful for more advanced players to learn the skill of 'holding'.

This involves the player setting their feet once in the right position for the ball, and holding until their opponent has made a move to one side of the court before they hit it to the other.

The ball must be at a comfortable contact height to do this.

Players can aim at the targets as they wish, they are simply on the court as a guide.

The drill can be made competitive by the player with the highest number of targets hit being the winner.
