Three Simple Solo Tennis Drills to Help Improve Your Game
Tennis is a great game, but takes a lot of practice to be able to play well. These three simple drills that are meant for solo practice will help you understand racket and ball control as well as increase your speed, reaction time, and foot work.
Racket control is a major factor in how you play Tennis. Try and hold your racket like your shaking someone's hand, with a nice firm grip. Now when you get ready to practice swing, make sure you swing all the way through, starting from behind you and following through all the way to your front. Also maintain a nice firm grip on the racket while swinging, a loose grip may cause the ball to go in a direction you did not intend.
Once you have practiced your swing, and have a good grip on racket control you'll have to learn ball control. One simple drill is to hold the racket like a frying pan and bounce the ball in the center of the racket, applying the same amount of force each and every time you hit the ball. This will teach you control on a basic level, applying the same amount of force consistently and keeping an eye on the ball. Try to bounce the ball fifty times without dropping it or losing control.
Once you become good at the "frying pan" drill try flipping the racket each time you hit the ball. This will teach you more control with your hands, and still force you to keep a constant force on the ball. This variation of the "frying pan" drill will improve your hand eye coordination, ball control, and speed. Also try your own variation of the "frying pan" drill, because the drill is so simple, it's like vanilla, plane, but you can add anything to it to make it better!
The last solo tip to help improve your Tennis game is to work on your foot coordination. You'll be running a lot during a Tennis match, so having good coordination with your feet is very important. Trying running sideways on the white lines around the Tennis court crossing your feet as you go. Take a side step with your right foot and then step forward an to the side with your left, crossing your feet. Now take another side step with your right foot, and cross your left foot behind the right. Continue this slowly until you get the hand of it, then try it faster, and in reveres, with your right foot doing the crossing.
These are three simple drills you can do on your own in your spare time, not only at the Tennis court, but around your own home or wherever. No matter where you do them, you'll find that they teach good fundamental skills that will help you to enjoy Tennis to its fullest potential.
