Warm up


The standard warm up, which normally includes a couple of minutes of stretching and a few rallies is not enough.  An effective warm up starts off the court combining activities that will not only get the body ready to perform but will help the players improve their athleticism.  It will then progress to an on-court warm up in which players will slowly hone their rhythm and technique and at the same time get mentally ready to perform.

Finally, a fun mini tennis game can serve as a great transition to the start of the main section of the training session. In this section you will find clear examples of warm up activities that will help maximize a player’s on court performance.
