College Tennis

Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Anyone can play tennis, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their skill level to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty when they hit forehands due to the fact that they do not know how to properly use the right muscles for their forehands and in which order to hit powerful forehands. Tennis players also struggle with their backhands due lack of knowledge on how to properly position themselves to hit a good backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the sport and must be addressed.

A successful tennis swing is dependent on your grip. Many beginners make the mistake of holding the racket too loose or tight and then miss the ball, making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they swing at the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to hold the racket correctly in the right position.

The other important factor to remember is that your forehand swing should be straight from the beginning and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is called cut or high arc shot. A low arc or hook will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine what kind of shots you need to be practicing. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as you get closer to the ball.

Remember to always swing with your shoulders aligned with the ball. This will ensure that your shoulders are always in contact with your ball, allowing your arms to swing with ease. While you move your arms, your shoulders should not leave the socket of your racquet. This can make it extremely difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

When you are approaching the ball, make sure that your arm is pointing from your side and not your backside. By putting your arm on your side actually weakens your ability to generate energy and generate a good backswing. You need a solid grip to control the rotation of your arm. A weak grip could result in injuries. It can cause you lose the ball or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injury.

The angle of your stance is another crucial factor to ensure a good grip. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right hand draped across their body. For those who are just beginning the left arm is typically carried across their body. Most coaches recommend using a neutral grip or a style similar to a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from swinging with an arm that isn’t dominant.

Open stance forehand tennis players tend to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and do not have a proper grip. This issue can be resolved by holding the racket with neutral grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players who have an open forehand. This can be achieved by placing the racket on your head while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.

Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket in front of their head and above their shoulders. The racket should be facing your crotch in case you are left handed and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if you’re left handed. This will prevent the over-the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips so that you don’t give either side of your body any room to swing.
