28. Apr Oscar Tennis Tips, Uncategorized Take A Picture With young children, I tell them “pretend the butt of the racket is a camera and take a picture at the finish towards where the ball went”. They love this and it ensures a complete finish and accurate trajectory. Hold your finish to get a complete swing and directional control.

I have been teaching 5 year olds to do this even though conventional coaching doesn’t encourage them to follow through. Another great idea I had was to transform the ready position into the ‘ready state’, I get them to press the ‘power button’ on their racket before the other person hits the ball,the power button is a fun sticker I give them to put on the end of their grips, usually their favorite caracter. I will be sending avideo shortly to Lucile showing my 5 year old daughter after 1 year of using your techniques. Regards NIall bouncingfeltball 03.

They have to aim it after hitting the ball and eventually shoot it as it landed on the court 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
