Serve & Return

  • Depth and Accuracy are the biggest keys for both Serve and Return
  • Returns
    • Short Backswing
    • Turn Sideways
    • Weight transfer forward
    • Chip/Push it back – not a full blown swing

Serve & Return with Accuracy

  • Partners set up cross court from each other at baseline
  • Set up target cones for returner to aim at
  • Serving partner alternates serving to forehand and backhand deep
  • Returner focuses on deep returns at targets
  • Do on both Even and Odd sides then switch who is serving and who is returning

Purposeful Play

  • Keep them back
  • Drive the right 3rd (shallow and high make em cry!)
  • Speed it up
  • Look to Erne

Look for Off Balance Opponents and Open Court

  • Train your brain to see these!
  • If there is blood in the water – BE A SHARK!
