COACHING POINTS

Coaching Points

    In this drill the player works on hitting backhands cross court from different positions on the court. Placement is the most important but coach can also work on technical aspects at the same time.

Progression

For players who have a good fitness level, the coach can modify the drill by adding recovery to the center after each shot to see how players hit when they are tired.
