Backhand grip

In Nick Saviano's book, Maximum Tennis, Andre Agassi is said to have a very 'soft' left hand on his backhand, and yet often I hear and read many tips suggesting a very dominant, or active, supporting hand for the two handed backhand. Especially now, with the more semi-open stanced players, what should I suggest when teaching the backhand to developing players?

What's the best way to decide on contenders for a doubles team?

Please can you describe the most effective way of deciding on the best doubles trialists at a club. Perhaps you could do an article on the clearest way of deciding on contenders for a doubles team. I've heard of one method only %3A you play 4 members of the squad at a time ; get them to play 2 sets, getting the 2 stronger players to swap sides after the first set, and totalling the aggregate scores after those 2 sets in order to rank the players in order of doubles skill... Any better ideas?

Fun technique drills for 4-5 year-olds?

I could use some relatively easy technique drills that are fun to keep the kids I train interested. They have played for 4 months (beginners) and are aged 4-5. If you know some fun drills involving forehand and backhand I would very much appreciate if you'd answer this question! Thanks in advance!

I have been using Sportplan now for 3 years and can honestly say that I have never repeated the same session twice. My girls are always focused and are improving every year. Thanks Sportplan.

What a fantastic tool. The Chalkboard and session tools make an unbelievable difference in making training plans in both time and organization. I will be instructing all of my assistant coaches that this tool must be used for all sessions during the season, so that we may build a club coaching resource library.
