5 Quick Tips for Beginning Tennis Players

  1. 1. 5 Tips for Tennis Players Beginners Only
  2. 2. Introduction  Hey there future tennis fans! Thanks for stopping by to read a few helpful tips to refine that tennis game of yours. Tennis is a really fun sport and it becomes even more fun once you begin to understand the fundamentals of the game. After learning the fundamentals all you have to do is practice, practice, practice!
  3. 3. 1. Taking too big of a swing!  New tennis players think that hitting a ball requires you to take a huge back swing, but that is simply not true.  The most important thing for a beginner to master is actually the contact point, which is right next to your front foot.  Often a tennis coach will say, "Catch that ball out in front," which means that you are hitting the ball late and letting the ball get behind you. In order to fix this you need to take a shorter swing.
  4. 4. 2. Preparation is key!  Do not wait for the ball to come over the net, onto your side, and bounce all before you take your racket back.  As soon as you see the ball go to either your forehand or backhand you should take your racket back right away.  Remember not to take too big of a swing though!
  5. 5. 3. Watch the ball!  This sounds cliché and it probably is, but this old saying holds true in tennis.  The longer you watch the ball, the better of a chance you have to hit the ball cleanly (or in the middle of your racket strings).  So watch that ball hit your racket and you will hit the ball better.
  6. 6. 4. Power isn't everything!  Your goal should not be power.  Trying to use your muscle is actually not good technique. Your focus should be on your technique.  Anyone can hit the ball over the fence, but not everyone can hit the ball over the net and in the court.  Do not focus on hitting the ball hard.
  7. 7. 5. Get a Coach  Self-taught tennis = bad habits.  There are many benefits to having a coach watch you play and fix your technique.  Coaching is not cheap and not everyone can afford to have lessons, but if you can afford it and are willing to work hard, then you can improve your tennis game dramatically.
  8. 8. The End  That's all the basic tips I have for you here! Go out and put it into action. Have some fun and always look to improve!
