This week we're helping your players improve the consistency and placement of their backhand strokes.
Players often have weaker backhands than forehands, so it is important that players regularly work on this to stop it becoming a weakness in their game.
What's in the Session?
Packed with great live ball drills, we start with a fun drill that uses the doubles alley as a target before working on hitting strokes from different parts of the court (deep, middle and short). Drills also cover controlling direction, recovering quickly and opening up the court by using the angle.
In a match, every ground stroke is played off a different variety of footwork movements. A fine technique is built upon the ability to take an effective position on court to play the stroke. Therefore develop your players reaction times and their footwork with a focus on their technique and tactical positioning.
Volleying is all about positioning and touch. Get your player in the in the right position to make the shot and finish the point and when perfected, it will be a lethal weapon in a players game.
