In the next edition of the coaches journal „TennisSport“ will be published an article about games for Kids starting with tennis. In our „tradition“ of non-linear pedagogy. All games are implicit and constraints led by changing rules, material, environment and tasks.
Improving service, court covery and creativity in a game based and constraints led drill.

We have talked a lot about non-linear pedagogy in modern ways to teach skills in many sports. This is very often a view on the details of helping young and older players to improve their expertise in their games.
The following article by Wayne Goldsmith sets a brighter view on the pathway coaches, society and sports industry seem to go. Goldsmith describes that there is something wrong with this idea of a defined „sports pathway“. There is, as we have recognized in coaching skills and tactics, nothing linear.
This is something very important that influences our view on our sport and on our clients!
As in particular (in trainings and coaching) we need a global view: „You’ve got to start again and think differently.“

The double field is enlarged behind the base line to the fence that surrounds the court (yellow lines). Draw additional lines from base-/doubleline to the fence
Drill to improve tactics, reaction, court recovery in doubles, dialogue, special skills like volley (topspin), withstanding high pressure and playing lob and smash.
And a lot of fun 🙂 .
