Coaches and Tennis Enthusiasts:
Using visualization as an aide to your lessons can be so powerful. As coaches, we have to understand that everyone is wired differently and what’s good the goose may not be good for the gander.
When teaching stroke production I like to instill simple visuals or analogies that the everyday player can relate to. These tools will be easy to remember during pressure situations and help to create muscle memory.
TeamForman’s Volley On a Table Top
If you create a plain a.k.a. “a table top”, and can keep your racquet head moving forward along the plain (table top)
Table Top Visual Helps:
1) Keeping your racquet head above your wrist
2) Helps you not to lead with your wrist
3) Keeps the ball in front of your body
4) Creates more power without swinging
Remember – you don’t have to be a pro to train like a pro!
