5 Drills to Boost Beginner's Serving Consistency

Many tennis players, young and old, struggle to serve with any sort of consistency. That's why this plan contains 5 simple drills to teach players to serve consistently, with control and not just power.

Being unable to serve consistently is the major cause of dropping tennis by many juniors, so coaches should put more emphasis on this mastery of this technique.

What's in the session?

To focus on areas that are causing problems for players this plan starts with an upper body warm up before then moving onto 5 easy and specific exercises that will help players see results quickly.

We begin with the toss. The toss is responsible for control of the serve so players should never serve if they feel that the ball was placed in the wrong spot. The ability to toss the ball into the same spot over and over again is a base that has to be learned from the earliest stages of development. From here we then focus on a high point of contact and also getting a high trajectory/em> on the serve.
