Most tennis players who become world champions start training in their tennis lessons right at childhood. It is true that tennis isn't the easiest sport for young children to learn, but a proper start is the prerequisite for a bright tennis career. But there is a catch. You must make sure that they are having fun while learning the game. If they love learning the game then you can be sure that they will become successful players. When you teach them the various strokes consider the following tips.
When teaching them ground strokes you must:
a) Start with a very short back swing and a possibly shortened grip, but you should always have a normal follow-through, then slowly you should lengthen the back swing and slide the grip toward the handle.
b) Always start with a drop feed, go to a short toss feed and then feed from your racquet.
c) Always start inside the service line and gradually move back.
d) Start without running, then with a few steps, then with a run. A few kids hit better with a run.
When you teach them overheads then the things that you should do are:
Always keep the lesson brief. If you teach the kids for half an hour then it is more than enough.
If you find any student or students is having any real trouble with the drills, make the last drill something very easy, such as volleys. If you provide the kids with accurate feeds, then youll find that even the least coordinated kid will get volleys to go in.
