Tennis Instructions

Tennis is among the most popular sports played in the world. Tennis is a sport that anyone can play from beginners to professional. There are two major categories of tennis players. They are classified based on their ability to hit the ball more than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players struggle with their forehands as they aren’t aware of how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands, and in the right order to hit powerful forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands due to the fact that they don’t know enough about how to properly position themselves for a perfect backhand on the court. This is why these two essential areas of the game must to be addressed by those who wish to be successful in the game.

The grip is the most crucial element of an effective tennis swing. Many new players make the mistake of holding the racket too tightly or too loosely, and end up either missing the ball or making a poor contact or even having the racket fall off while they are swinging at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best chance to hit the ball in the right way every time.

Another thing to keep in mind is that your forehand’s path should be straight. As you get closer to the top of your follow-through, your forehand swing path should be curved towards your top. This is known as cut shots or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have an inherent wrist hinge as well as wrist extension. These aspects will determine what type of shots you should be practicing. If you are working on the bank shot technique your forehand’s swing course will naturally curve towards the top as it gets closer to the ball.

Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball whenever you swing. This helps to keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball even as your arms swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders must not be removed from the socket or tennis racquet during your swing. It could make it extremely difficult to capture the ball in the event that this happens.

When you are approaching the ball, ensure that your arm is directed from your side and not towards your backside. Rotating your arms towards your side can decrease your power and ability to generate power. You need a solid grip to control the rotation of your arm. Having a weak grip can be extremely dangerous as it could cause you to be unable to catch the ball, or it could cause you to extend your arm. This can result in injury.

Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. The majority of tennis players are right-handed and have their right arm slung across their bodies. For those who are just beginning their left arm is usually slung across their body. Most coaches advise that you hold the club in the neutral grip or like a baseball position. A neutral grip can stop you from hitting with an arm that isn’t dominant.

Open stance forehand tennis players are more likely to have problems with their forearms. Open stance forehand players tend to have problems with their grip. One way to address this problem is to hold the racket using an even grip. Closed grips are ideal for tennis players with an open forehand. You can achieve this by placing the racket in front of your skull, your knees bent, and keeping your elbows locked.

Tennis players who have a dominant hand should move the racket over their heads and then over their shoulder. If you’re a right-handed player the racket should be facing your crotch. If you’re a left-handed player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the over-the-head swing or the swing under the shoulder from occurring. When you swing keep your wrists straight, and keep them down your hips, making sure you don’t allow either side of your body any room to swing.
