Tennis Tip #29

Nick Hansen, tennis teacher at Arrowhead Tennis and Athletic Center, discusses how to use a ball machine, and some drills that you can do. The ball machine is a great tool to practice your strokes and gain the repetition that you need to take your game to the next level. Set the ball machine to feed the ball deep to your forehand or backhand and practice your contact point being slightly out front and hitting a variety of spins. Another great drill is to set the ball machine up in the doubles alley and practice seeing how many balls in a row you can hit back into the doubles alley straight ahead. Also, try hitting an approach shot and moving in for a series of volleys, always having a target. Come and try out the ball machine at Arrowhead Tennis!
