Tennis Wearhouse

Tennis is a very well-known sport. Everyone can play tennis, from beginners to the pros. Tennis players can be grouped into two broad categories based on their skill to hit the ball more and higher than a backhand or forehand. Most often, tennis players have difficulty when they hit forehands due to the fact that they don’t know how to properly engage the correct muscles for their forehands, and in what order to hit strong forehands. Likewise, tennis players also struggle with their backhands as they do not know enough about the proper way to properly position themselves for a great backhand down the court. These two areas are essential to the game and must be addressed.

The grip is the most crucial aspect of an effective tennis swing. Many beginners make the mistake of holding their racket in a way that is too loose or tight and end up missing the ball and making poor contact or letting their racket slide when they swing at the ball. The best method to hit the ball correctly is to keep the racket in the proper position.

The other thing you need to keep in mind is that your forehand swing should be straight from the beginning and then curve towards the top of your body as you approach the top of your follow-through. This is referred to as a cut shot or high arc. A hook with a low arc will begin with an easier wrist hinge and wrist extension. These factors will influence the type of shots you need to master. For instance, if you are practicing a technique known as the bank shot, your forehand swing path will naturally move towards the top as you get closer to the ball.

Always keep your shoulders in line with the ball as you swing. This helps keep your shoulders in constant contact with the ball while your arms are free to move. Remember that your shoulders must never leave the socket or your tennis racquet during your swing. It can make it very difficult to capture the ball if this occurs.

As you approach the ball, make sure to move your arm to your side, not your backside. Rotating your arms to your side can actually reduce your power and your ability to generate power. To allow your arm to rotate correctly, you must hold a firm grip on the club. A weak grip can cause injury. It can cause you not to hit the ball or cause you overextend your arms. This could result in injury.

Another key factor in the proper grip is the angle you stand at. Tennis beginners tend to be right-handed and have their right hand spread across their 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 similar to a baseball posture. Holding the club in a neutral position will aid in preventing an arm that is not dominant when you swing.

Open stance forehand tennis players tend to have problems with their forearms. Forehand players with an open stance are more likely to have issues with their grip. This problem can be solved by holding the racket in a neutral grip. Tennis players who have open stance forehand should attempt to use a closed grip. This can be accomplished by putting the racket behind your head, while your knees are bent and your elbows are locked.

Tennis players that have a hand that is not dominant should swing the racket above their head and over their shoulder. If you’re a left handed player the racket should point towards your crotch. If you’re a lefthanded player, the racket should be pointing towards your waist. This will prevent the over the head swing as well as the under-the-shoulder swing from happening. Keep your wrists straight as you swing. Also, ensure you don’t give any side of your body too much room.
