It is so fun and energetic to play tennis, but sometimes you feel you need to improve your skills in playing. These three tips to improve your tennis skills contain wealthy (your arms don’t get hurt after playing ), dexterity and moving skills.
First, it is very important to keep your body in a good fit and relaxed, also after your tennis playing. Avoid unnecessary extra tension in your arm while playing.
This is the key: remember to hit your hit until the end. Don’t keep your arm in tension after hitting. Hit the large curve to the end. Do the smooth and long swing.
Show your mark at the bottom of your tennis racket at the start and also at the end of your hit to your opponent. Then your arm can release after hitting. Otherwise, there is left a big tension in your arm.
It is wise to practice the right swing technique at first and right away, then you don’t have practice away from the wrong technique.
2. The Aim to Hit Correctly
You notice while you play tennis, that your big challenge is to hit the ball at the right time and in the right position. If you hit too early it is not good and too late it is not good, neither. The timing is as important as that you hit the ball in the center of your racket.
Mishitting the ball is a common mistake during the tennis game as a beginner tennis player. Everybody mishits sometimes. You can improve and practice your skills to hit the ball right also by bouncing the ball up and down with your tennis racket without hitting the floor. You can try to hit the center of the net of the racket. I some times practice by bouncing the ball with my left-hand because right-hand gets more practice all the other time.
3. Moving correctly
You have probably noticed that it is easier to move forward than backward. So your position is better a little bit back, not too near the net. Of course, the tennis ball can be hit near the net too and sometimes you can play from the net and it is ok and you can practice that too. My point now is that mainly, your position is better in the back of the playing court, also at the beginning.
Your moving in the court counts. When you watch the professionals playing you see they move almost all the time. You can also do more moves. For example, every time when your opponent hits the ball you jump a little bit and move right away to the correct position. So you are more ready to go where the ball comes after your little jump.
I remember when I played with my daughter when she was a kid, she only stands on the court and waves her racket when I tried to hit the ball straight to her racket. A while ago I said, you can move also. Ha-ha, that is not what you should do, only stand by. Her playing skills have improved so much from that.
We still are happy to play together, almost every week last summer. She is a part of my tennis team and both of us have improved our tennis skills in tennis courses and playing together.
