Stick Tennis

Tennis is among the most popular sports played in the world. It is a sport anyone can play, from beginners to pros. Tennis players can be classified into two broad categories based on their ability level to hit the ball farther and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most times, tennis players struggle with hitting forehands because they aren’t aware of how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands or in what order to hit strong forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with backhands because they don’t know enough about how to set themselves up to hit a great backhand down the court. So, these two crucial aspects of the game have to be addressed by those who wish to be successful in the sport.

A successful tennis swing is dependent on the grip you use. Many beginners make the error of holding the racket too tight or loosely and then miss the ball and making poor contact or having their racket slip when they swing at the ball. By holding the racket in the correct way will give you the best opportunity to strike the ball correctly every time.

The other thing you need to remember is that your forehand swing path should start out straight and then curve upwards towards the top of your body as you reach the top of your follow-through. This is known as cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc will have an inherent wrist hinge as well as wrist extension. These factors will determine the kind of shots you need to be practicing. For instance, if, for example, you are practicing a technique referred to as the bank shot your forehand swing path will naturally move towards the top as you get closer to the ball.

Keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This will ensure that your shoulders are in constant contact with the ball, allowing your arms to swing freely. Be aware that your shoulders must never move away from the socket or the tennis racquet during your swing. This can make it extremely difficult to take the ball back when this happens.

As you approach the ball, be sure to rotate your arm from your side, not from your backside. Rotating your arm to the side could decrease your power and ability generate power. To get your arm to move properly you need to hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip could result in injuries. It could cause you to miss the ball, or cause you to overextend your arms. This could lead to injuries.

Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle of your stance. Tennis beginners are typically right-handed and wear their right hand spread across their body. For those who are just beginning the left arm is usually carried across their body. The majority of coaches advise holding the club with a neutral grip or in a manner similar to a baseball grip. A neutral grip will prevent you from hitting with an arm that isn’t dominant.

Tennis players with open stance forehand tend to have problems with their forearms. When players with an open-stance forehand, they tend to over-turn their wrists and do not have a good grip. This issue can be fixed by holding the racket with neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand should attempt to use a closed grip. This can be achieved by placing the racket over your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.

Tennis players with a non-dominant hand should swing the racket above their head and over their shoulder. If you’re a right-handed player, the racket should face your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, it should be facing towards your waist. This will prevent the over the head swing and the under-the shoulder swing from happening. When you swing keep your wrists straight and down your hips to ensure that you don’t allow either side of your body any space to swing.
