Tips & Advice


You can practice your serve using a rope in the garden or a line on a wall instead of a net. Practice will pay huge dividends.


The step-through or kick-through is vital here to gain distance on your stroke. Twist your body for extra power.


Try a series of 10 x 10 metre sprints at full pace. Allow 2-3 minutes rest between each sprint. Warm down gently afterwards.


Try flat drives across the net with a partner. Move closer together to reduce reaction time and sharpen your reflexes.


Avoid static stretching of cold muscles. This can actually damage your muscle and reduce power output.


Try serving with your eyes closed to gain a better awareness of your body and how you hit a stroke. Not during a game though!
