Another constraints led coaching drill to improve service, return and recovery.
Very often, especially young players are not able to deal with being behind in the score. They let their heads hang down and give up. In this game the player’s emotion is manipulated. Both players dice before the match. The result of their dices is the current score.
Variations: play up to 10 points, ball is played in by the coach; always on the same player; on the player who is behind in the score; play with service; play a matchtiebreak, starting with the dice score; play a set to six, starting with the dice score…
New „Count to ten“ variations:
- count backwards!
- every hit over the net counts
- every hit into a special target counts
- the hits into a special target have to be set in a row
- upon reaching a predetermined number of goals, the ball is „free“ and the point is played in the whole court (in groups with four in one half of the court)
- groups with four play 1-1 in the half of the double-field
- players count the announced number of balls over the net or balls into a target backwards
This is an INNER COACHING Drill to give the player a feeling about playing the ball by stepping into the stroke. Using the mark as an external focus, we have the concentration on the essentials and an implicit learning and a better selfawareness without giving technical instructions.
This is an INNER COACHING (TMS) Video, not to be taken very serious. Nevertheless it says something about the other way of teaching and learning motor skills by changing general conditions 😉
Das Arbeitsgedächtnis, die Inhibition (Hemmung von Verhaltensweisen) und die kognitive Flexibilität lassen sich auch im Tennistraining verbessern. Das sind sogenannte „exekutive Funktionen“. Deren Verbesserung hilft bei der Entwicklung der „Spielintelligenz“ und hat eine positive Auswirkung auf die außersportlichen Lernleistungen!
Die folgende Übung lenkt außerdem die Aufmerksamkeit weg vom Nachdenken über die Bewegung (trick the mind).
