INSIDE TU #25 – THE CRASHING FOREHAND

Thu, 29.11.2018

Inside TU video #25, Sascha Nensel takes you through a complete training session focusing on the forehand groundstroke. An important focus for the exercises is to activate the legs and find the right position on the court. The first part both players will only look to hit forehands though the middle to activate the legs. The second part of the exercise will have one player staying in one corner, whilst the other player stays in the middle of the court. The player who stays in the middle plays three shots to the opposing player. After the minimum 3 shots is played, the player in the middle of the court is allowed to hit into the open court to finish the point but must stay patient in finding the right ball to attack. After 2 minutes of work, the coach feeds 8 to 10 balls where each player will use their forehand to play aggressively into the corners. The third part of the exercise is a game played to 11 where a forehand winner is worth 3 points.
