  3. 3. About Me <ul><li>My name is Lauren Stoffel </li></ul><ul><li>I am a Junior at Grand Valley State University. </li></ul><ul><li>I am majoring in Elementary Education. </li></ul><ul><li>I enjoy teaching children, and helping them learn. </li></ul><ul><li>I also love playing tennis, and hanging out with my friends around campus . </li></ul>Email Me! End
  4. 4. The Court <ul><li>Tennis is played on a court that is 78 feet long and 27 feet wide. </li></ul><ul><li>There are several surfaces on which the game of tennis can be played. These varieties are clay, grass, carpet and hard court. </li></ul><ul><li>The court is divided in half by the net. Players have to hit the ball over the net in order for the point to count. </li></ul><ul><li>White baselines surround the court in a rectangular shape. The ball must also hit inside the rectangle for the point or shot to count. The white baseline is where the player shoots. The inner line is the area for singles play and the outer for doubles play. Stretching from the net, to halfway down the court, </li></ul><ul><li>The short white line dividing each side of the court into boxes - this is called the service court . </li></ul>End
  5. 5. Time to Play <ul><li>There are two different ways to play tennis. The first way is called singles. This is where you play a game with one-on-one. </li></ul><ul><li>For singles you only count the shot if it hits in side the 3 boxes in the middle of the court. </li></ul><ul><li>The second way to play is called doubles. Doubles is where each team has a partner with them on their side. You are playing two-on-two. </li></ul><ul><li>You can hit the ball anywhere in the big rectangle when you are playing doubles. </li></ul><ul><li>Each point starts with a serve which is taken from behind the baseline. </li></ul><ul><li>The ball must bounce into the service court on the diagonally opposite side. The point stops when one player fails to hit the ball back or the ball hits outside of the outer baselines. </li></ul>End
  6. 6. Serving <ul><li>Here are some step by step instructions for serving. </li></ul><ul><li>First you stand with both feet behind the white baseline. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You stand in a sideways stance and keep your left foot pointed towards the right side of the net. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>While you are standing in this position your left hand will be holding the ball raised above your head out in front of your body. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>When throwing the ball, throw it about 1 feet in front of your body. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>While the ball is in the air, bring your racquet back and up above and behind your head. Once the ball is at a good level, stretch your arm out at the highest point reachable. </li></ul><ul><li>Your weight will switch from your back foot to your front at this time. </li></ul><ul><li>When hitting the ball, use a “up and over” movement like you are throwing the racquet at the ball. </li></ul><ul><li>The follow through is the most important as you swing and carry your racquet forward into the court </li></ul>End
  7. 7. Forehand <ul><li>The forehand shot is one of the few shots that are involved in the game of tennis. </li></ul><ul><li>One of the most common forehand grips is called the “eastern forehand”. People think of this as being called the “shaking hands”, because it looks as if you are going to shake someone’s hand. </li></ul><ul><li>The forehand is a shot that only uses one of your hands/arms. You extend the shot on your right side with your right hand and move your hand from down on your right side and bring it up and across your body. </li></ul><ul><li>After you hit the ball you will catch the racquet over your left shoulder with your left hand. </li></ul><ul><li>This is one of the most commonly used shots in the game of tennis. </li></ul>End
  8. 8. Backhand <ul><li>The backhand is similar to the forehand because you are going to use the “eastern forehand” grip again. </li></ul><ul><li>Most players use a two-handed shot when they use their backhand swing. </li></ul><ul><li>After you become more advanced at the backhand you may want to try a one handed backhand. </li></ul><ul><li>The backhand is a shot that uses both of your hands/arms. You extend the shot on your left side with your both of your arms and move your hand from down on your left side and bring it up and across your body. </li></ul><ul><li>You will end the shot with your racquet above your right shoulder. </li></ul>End
  9. 9. The Score <ul><li>The score is one of the most important things in a tennis match. </li></ul><ul><li>The score is also one of the most difficult things for beginners to master. </li></ul><ul><li>You start out with love all which means 0-0. </li></ul><ul><li>The next point is 15-love which means 15-0 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>After that it’s 30-love, then 40-love. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After 40 –love the next point wins! </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If you are tied at 40-40 it’s called deuce . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This means you need to score two more points to win the game. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you win the first point it’s called ad-in, and if you lose the point it’s called ad-out. Once you get the next point after ad-in you win the game! </li></ul></ul>End
  10. 10. Game, Set, Match <ul><li>There are three more components of tennis that are important. They are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Game </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Match </li></ul></ul><ul><li>First, there are 6 games in a set. The winner must win by two games. For example the score must be 6-4. A tiebreaker is to be played if both teams tie at 6-6. The players will continue to play until one wins by two games. </li></ul><ul><li>Once you play one set. You must play two more. Best out of three sets wins. In professional tennis, men will play best out of 5 sets. </li></ul>End
  11. 11. The Volley <ul><li>There are three types of volleys </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the forehand volley   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>·the backhand volley   </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>·and the overhead volley </li></ul></ul><ul><li>During a volley you hold the racquet to your right side for a forehand, and your left side (with two hands) for a backhand volley. </li></ul><ul><li>You hit the ball soft and tap it, instead of a full swing. </li></ul><ul><li>You just need to turn your body, (right for forehand and left for backhand) at the shoulders and bring the racquet back only a short distance. </li></ul><ul><li>These moves are to be used when standing either in the service court or when you are right up at the net. </li></ul>End
  12. 12. Extra Pointers <ul><li>The server's always states their score first. If the server is winning and scoring she would say that the score is “40-15” for example. Therefore you can now tell that the server has one 3 points and the other teammate has one point. </li></ul><ul><li>Don’t step over the line! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When serving the ball, if you step inside the boundaries before the ball is hit you will have lost your shot. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Here is a video that shows you a 3-step system to serving a ball in the game of tennis! </li></ul><ul><li>Click here to watch the video! </li></ul>End
