On this page you will find little challenges to keep your tennis skills up at home.  Some I have developed and some like the Tennis Super Movers I have added as it is a great resource.  Keep an eye out on Facebook and this page for new tasks and games.

Tennis Super Movers 

This is a great programme that has been developed by the Head of strength and conditioning at Bolton Arena High Performance Tennis Academy and worked with  players beginning their journey to professional players including world number one athletes.  I have personally bought this programme for my children as it is a great foundation for young athletes and really well structured and easy to follow.  See below a for a Demo.  

If you are interested in buying this programme, it costs £40 and for both myself and the coaches who have also bought it, we can see a difference.

Racket and Ball Skills 

In this video we use a racket a ball and a wall.  To do this first make sure you ask parents / guardians permission and make sure there is enough space with no breakable / expensive items around.  This could be an outside wall.  When safe to do so, have a go!

Practice against a wall

If you have an outdoor wall and it’s safe and you have parents permission you can also have a go at the wall drill series.

Practicing against the wall is a great way to improve many elements of your game without the need to have a partner.  There is 50 in total which I have broken down into sets of 10 with little challenges, I hope you enjoy them and with practice they will transform your game!  Kevin

Part 1/5 of a series of drills to practice against a hitting wall. Part one consists of a variation of topspin ground stroke combinations and is developed as a base level to build on.

Part 2 of the Wall series looks at the same drill combinations and challenges as Part 1 but using slice forehands and backhands.

Part 3 of the Wall series looks at changing grips and spins combining Topspin shots (T-spin) and Slice. If you are a newer player becoming comfortable with building consistency with Slice and Topspin on there own is advised (Parts 1 & 2).

Part 4 of the wall series moves away from ground stroke combinations to volley combinations. When practicing these it is advised to use and get comfortable with the chopper grip.

In part 5 of the wall drills we work on harder variations of part fours volley drills. Taking some drills from 31-40 we look at different heights and distances to develop better hands on the volley.
