What is Cardio Tennis?
Cardio tennis is a part of the sport that often goes unnoticed. It is a high energy fitness activity that combines the best bits of tennis with cardiovascular exercise to delivery a full body, calorie burning workout.
What's in the Session?
We begin with dynamic stretching and fun warm ups for your players before getting them to work on their baseline shots with two demanding drills. We then teach your players to respond and hustle, ensuring they learn how to react quickly, before working on their delivery. Our final drills then involve players taking part in 'ping pong' tennis, which can be done with large or small groups before a well deserved cool down finishes a hard session for your players.
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.
