[tennisbiz] Ball toss drill
If you are having probs with your youngsters..or oldies ..with
the ball toss..here is a good practice that can be done not
needing a court..but can be used at home...in the garden or as
you say in the USA in the yard.
Get the pupil to stand ..left shoulder forward if right handed..
towards a post..for eg a light post...basket ball post..stand
about a metre away and practice tossing the ball so it goes up
and down parallel to the post..and more importantly the hand
should travel up and down the post, so with abit of time on
this, the ball should land between the pupil and the post,
enabling him or her to catch it after the first bounce and do
it again, and again, and again..its only time, there is no
short cut to this.
