Tennis SuperMovers Footwork Challenge - October 2021
Tennis SuperMovers Footwork Challenge – October 2021
The goal is to create a simple drill that can be completed on the tennis court and be easily timed to test yourself or your players. Then over the coming weeks, add this drill to players’ warm-ups and fitness sessions, then re-time them to see the improvement they have made.
This month’s drill combines sprinting, backpedalling and change of direction, all to maintain the on-court speed.
