Coaching points

  • Changing position after every shot forces the player to maintain good footwork and also to adjust to the incoming ball.
  • The focus should be on control instead of power to learn how to keep the ball in play.
  • Coach should remind the player to avoid unnecessary backswing and add some backspin to the shots to increase control and keep the ball consistently in given direction.
