No matter your level, there’s a good chance you are always looking to improve. With that being said, I wanted to start a weekly challenge for anyone out there ready to add a weekly challenge to help improve your game.
So let’s start with something easy.
Spend 30 minutes working on your serve this week.
Strategy and tactics are such crucial elements of tennis. You could have better strokes, better fitness and better equipment than your opponent, but choosing the right shot to hit at the right time is more important if you want to win matches.
“Stoplight” Tennis is a simple and easy concept to help your on-court strategy and shot selection. Your court positioning should dictate what shot to hit, so keep this basic strategy in mind for your next match and you’ll surprise yourself with how many more points you win.
