COURSE CONTENT

Adult Tennis Coaching SessionsThere is a general theme for each week, although the exact structure will depend on people’s levels as seen on the first week. As a guide:

  • Week 1 covers forehands
  • Week 2 covers backhands
  • Week 3 covers volleys and smashes
  • Week 4 covers linking shots and aiming
  • Week 5 introduces matchplay and basic tactics

Serving is covered in each week, being such an important aspect of play.

The general aim of the course is to introduce people to basics of technique, implementing these techniques into first rallies and then points. At the end of the course the aim is that most people will be able to play matches with confidence.

View some basics on how to play the game at the LTA website.
