Small Tennis Court Game

Tennis is a hugely popular sport. Everyone can play tennis from beginners to professionals. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability level to hit the ball more and higher than a forehand or a backhand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty with their forehands as they do not know how to engage the proper muscles for their forehands or in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Also, tennis players struggle with backhands because they don’t know enough about how to position themselves to hit a great backhand down the court. These two areas are vital to the game and must be addressed.

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

Another important thing to be aware of 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 referred to as cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc would have an natural wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you should be practicing. If you’re practicing the bank shot technique the forehand swing is likely to curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.

Remember to always swing with your shoulders aligned with the ball. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms swing freely. Keep in mind that the shoulders must never move away from the socket or the racquet while you are swinging. If this happens, it will be extremely difficult to capture the ball.

As you approach the ball, ensure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arms to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability generate power. You need a solid grip to control your arm’s rotation. A weak grip could lead to injury. It can cause you lose the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This can lead to injury.

The angle of your stance is an important factor in ensuring an effective grip. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and wear their right hand slung across the body. The left arm of newbies is often slung across their body. Most coaches recommend that you hold the club in a neutral grip or like a baseball position. Holding the club in a neutral position will help prevent you from having an arm that is not dominant during your swing.

Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have issues with their forearms. When players with an open-stance forehand, they tend to twist their wrists, and they do not have a good grip. One way to address this issue is to hold the racket with an even grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket behind your skull, your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.

Tennis players who are non-dominant handed should swing the racket in front of their head and over their shoulders. The racket should face your crotch in case you are an right-handed player and the racket should be pointing towards your waist if a left handed player. This will prevent the swing that is over the head or the swing under the shoulder from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight and down your hips, making sure you do not give either side of your body any room to swing.
