Drill 1

Use markers to create a football pitch.

Player 1 places a white ball on a marker and tries to score a goal.
They hit five forehands and five backhands

towards a goal defended by Player 2.

Players swap over after 10 shots.

Variation: perform the drill with two goals, giving Player 2 a larger area to cover.


Set up a goal on each side of an imaginary court. The players defend their goal as best they can.

First to seven points wins.

Tennis is a game of precision that involves a lot of legwork. The first educational drill allows children to work on their shots and to defend against each other. Players attack and defend according to the match situation.
