Tennis training will benefit tennis players of all levels. Don’t get me wrong, there is no substitute for hitting tennis balls, however tennis training can improve a player’s athleticism and raise the player’s overall level of play.
Over the years of teaching tennis I’ve discovered two things that limit the majority of player’s progress. Most tennis players who are looking to improve don’t play enough tennis and often times tennis beginners have limited motor skills.
Tennis can be a frustrating sport especially for players who have limited ball sports experience. This frustration can be magnified by not putting in enough time on court consistently. Most pro tennis players play tennis 4 to 6 hours a day and competitive junior tennis players at the state level typically play around 3 hours of tennis a day, six days a week. So, players who play tennis consistently and train to become better athletes make progress.
Tennis training includes activities that can help improve an athlete’s key skills that are vital to playing tennis well. These key skills are ball judgement, timing, rhythm and feel. These skills are developed over time and can be trained.
