[tennisbiz] Re: The Stroke Trainer (teaching aid)
There are actually many ways to simulate stroke development. Some are
training aids and there may be about 6-8 on the market at this time. Others
are extremely simple.
Here's the most simple and least expensive I know of:
When teaching anything, the learner will always find it most easy when they
are already familiar with the concept, movement, or skill involved. For
example, everyone in the world knows the child's game called "Connect the
Dots." Here's how you can use this familiarity for tennis.
Buy a packet of 1/2" or larger dots at an office supply store. For a
right-handed beginner learning the forehand groundstroke, place one dot on
the top of their right wrist and the other dot on their left shoulder. When
they hit a tossed ball, just say "connect the dots" and they will follow
through to a consistent place each and every time.
Other stroke training aids include the following products:
1. Stroke Trainer
2. Tennis Batter
4. Swing Trainer
5. The Spin Doctor
