Are You in the 100 Club:?

Practice this drill at warm-up and you will see improvement in your game. It's a 3 level warm-up drill up to 100 hits per level; starts off with Mini Tennis, then on to Volley's and finally with Baseline Ground-strokes.

100 Quick Tip: Don't get down if you can't get to 100 on the first try. To start off choose a lower number (25, 30...) and each week increase that number until your reach 100.

LEVEL ONE:
  • You and a partner hit (mini tennis) 1 ball 100 times (50 each)
  • Mini Tennis: Each player stands at mid court (on service line) and passes the ball to each other (no winners), letting the ball bounce once before it reaches the other player.

LEVEL TWO:
  • You and a partner hit (volleys) 1 ball 100 times (50 each)
  • Volleys: Each player stands a long arm length from the net and passes the ball to each other (no winners), not letting the ball hit the ground.

LEVEL THREE:
  • You and a partner hit (ground-strokes) 1 ball 100 times (50 each)
  • Baseline Ground-strokes: Each player stands at the baseline and passes the ball to each other (no winners), letting the ball bounce once before it reaches the other player.

GOOD LUCK and practice consistency, keep it alive!!!
