Tennis: Win Points from the Centre

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

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds short ball to the center of the court.
  • Player moves forward and hits offensive forehand off center to the deuce side.
  • Player runs to the net after the shot.
  • Coach feeds another ball to the ad side.
  • Player finishes with backhand stop volley cross-court.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on using short ball from the middle to win the point. Player should use forehand because most of the time it is a better stroke and secondly it is more difficult for opponent to read intentions of the stroke. After the shot player has to quickly move forward to take proper position at the net and increase own chances for winning the point. Because first shot was played hard and deep it is good option to hit stop-volley as a next shot. By changing speed and depth of own shots player learns how to control the ball using different skills that are necessary to execute variety of strategies against different styles of play.
