Tennis Tip #4: Overhead Tennis Shot

This week on ATAC tennis tips, Nick Hansen, tennis teacher, discusses how to hit the overhead. The overhead is one of the most fun and difficult shots to hit. Generally, the overhead is used when a player is at the net volleying, and the opponent throws a lob into the air. A similar motion to the serve is used to hit the overhead, and difficulty is added because a player must often move backwards quickly to hit it. Having a strong overhead is crucial to being an all-around player!
