One of the easiest ways to improve your tennis game is to work on your footspeed and movement on the court with Tennis Court Drills. We don’t have to spend a TON of time working on this, because a little
each week will dramatically improve our movement.
Here’s a simple but very effective drill we can do either on the court or at our homes that takes just a few minutes to complete. It’s called the Tennis T-Shuffle Drill:
Here’s how to do it if you’re on a tennis court:
1) Start at point A (at the Baseline)
2) Sprint to point B (the Tee)
3) Shuffle to left to point C (Left Singles Line)
4) Shuffle right to point D (Right Singles Line)
5) Shuffle left to point B (Center Tee)
6) Back pedal from point B to point A (Baseline)
That’s one round.
Complete 8 rounds of this Tennis Court Drill 3 Times per week at the end of your Agility Training.
This is a really simple tennis drill, but you’ll see dramatic improvement in your footwork on the courts within just a few weeks, so you may want to give it a shot.
Once you practice this drill and you find that completing 8 rounds is a bit difficult, you may want to give this tennis conditioning program a try to speed up your improvement. You can kill 2 birds with one stone by implementing court drills plus conditioning drills because it will 1) Improve your aerobic & anaerobic threshold (meaning you'll be able to play harder for longer periods of time) 2) Improve your movement on the courts. These 2 attributes alone will Dramatically improve your game without ever having to practice a single second longer than you have to, so you may want to check it out:
