In this video you will learn how to practice tennis alone using a wall.
This is a great drill to work on your strokes when you don't have a partner
Throw the ball out in front of you
Hit it so that it bounces off the wall, just above the line of net
Rally with the wall in this way until you are able to make ten, controlled forehand shots
You shouldn't have to take more than one or two steps to the side
Switch to your backhand and and drive onto the wall until you are able to hit consistently
Next alternate between forheand and backhand and rally against the wall
Move up closer to the wall and practice your forehand volley
Switch to backhand volleys
Remember to bend your knees and keep your racket head up
Next alternate between forehand and backhand volleys
Move on to practicing your serves
Focus on timing the ball rather than hitting it hard into the wall
You could also practice your slice against the wall
The wall is one of your most versatile allies in perfecting your technique on nearly all of your shots
Use any sequence of the variations working on both you backhand and forehand until you have complete control
Over to you!
