Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Before the player begins this drill the coach should demonstrate the correct way to play the stroke while explaining the important details about the shot.

Firstly the players should practise the motion of the forehand and then backhand stroke.

Secondly the coach should gently throw balls to the player, who has to perform a half volley using their hand.

COACHING POINTS

Many players struggle because they let the ball bounce too high. It is important to contact the ball right after it touches the ground.

This drill will help players understand the correct body movement to hit the shot.

On the second half of the drill the player should try to block the ball with their hand as soon after the bounce as possible.
