Are there coaching plans for children's tennis?

Are there any drills or lesson plans for coaching children's tennis?

Hi Nikki,

You have come to the right place! We have plenty of excellent tennis drills and plans for you to teach children with. One of them includes this forehand development drill below, which I found using the search bar (at the top of the page).

This practice looks at improving your player's technique and co-ordination. If you take a look at the co-ordination and fun games category, you'll find loads of fun drills to keep them happy playing tennis! 

Take a look through all of our tennis drills, to see what takes your fancy.

Hope that helps!

Forehand plus development

Description:

Coach rallies with player. Player alternates hitting forehand and catching/throwing forehand.


Coaching Points:

First athlete then tennis player. This phrase should be a priority for coaches working with kids.

Kids have to develop plenty of athletic skills to be able to become decent tennis players so early specialisation is an old and ineffective way to teach tennis.

Coaches should make sure that drills include development of tennis-specific and general skills at the same time to use 100 % of young players' possibilities to improve.
