Targets IV

Posted by Matt Kuzdub on Mittwoch, 13. September 2017

Nice drill, posted by Matt Kuzdub. By itself and with some variations, this is also a good exercise to improve decision making and executive functions. By the way we can use it as „Trick the mind“-Drills to improve mental strength.

1. set target on both sides;
2. use targets in different colours (f.e. one red and one white):
a) player announces the target before hitting the ball („red“ or „white“);
b) coach announces the target (colour);
c) player or coach uses animal names for the targets (red=“tiger“; white=“cheetah“)
d) coach or player announces target (colour) and speed or spin (f.e. „red-topspin“ or „red-save“, ….)
e) player or coach announces target (animal) and uses another animal name for spin or ball height (f.e. „snake=flat“, „giraffe= high over the net“), then f.e. „tiger-snake“ or „tiger-giraffe“,….


Serving from somewhere…

This is a constraints led practice drill. Serving from a line, 1,5 m behind the baseline and in extension of the single line.

Improving service, court covery and creativity in a game based and constraints led drill.

You can play f.e. 10 points from the deuce court side and 10 points from the add court side or you can play a regular counted game.
