Returning on a doubles court: keep them on their toes!

Use this plan to teach your players a variety of returns they can use during Doubles Play.

Strategy, communication and understanding are key elements needed for a successful doubles pairing - this can only be learnt over time and through practice, so the more time your players get to work together the better for their doubles game.

What's in the Session?

To develop your players' doubles game we get players to move to the ball and take responsibility for their side of the court - to do this players start on their own, working within a quarter area of the court. As the session progresses we get players pairing up for the final conditioned game which rewards both process (skillful shot play) and outcome goals (winning the point)!

Tennis is a young man's game. Until you're 25, you can play singles. From 25 to 35, you should play doubles. I won't tell you exactly how old I am, but when I played, there were 28 men on the court - just on my side of the net.
