Mission: For the everyday player no matter what age or level to transition from doubles to singles and enjoy the game.
As many of us are hitting the courts for the first time in months, restrictions in public parks and clubs have left us with singles only and in many areas limited court time. In GENERAL the everyday recreational player plays more doubles than singles for a variety of reasons…. so with phase 1 of opening tennis play to the public, singles is the new norm and coaches have to provide creative ways for their students to enjoy the game.
I’ve always been a big proponent to rec players playing both singles and doubles. It’s a great way to improve and is better for overall conditioning. (No matter what age or level!)
Day 1: Phase 1: Step 1: Singles Or Nothing
1 hour: Game: ONE ON ONE
1) Warm up
2) Split The Court in Half
3) Consistency Rallies Cross Court & Down The Line
4) Point Playing Half Court
5) 10 Minutes Full Court Rally
Remember – you don’t have to be a pro to train like a pro!
