Coaches Corner: the service leg drive

Welcome to our first ever coaches corner.

We are excited at the prospect of being able to offer some technical, tactical, mental and physical advice to all of you. In our first edition Jordan will be looking at the leg drive in the serve and the various ways that you can try to maximise the elastic energy you can create.

Hope you like it. Now get out and practice!

Coaches Corner

We would like to introduce the latest and most exciting section of our blog, our coaches corner. Jordan Gray head coach at Thorn Park LTC in Glasgow Scotland and former full-time professional will be guiding you through some of his ideas on how to improve your game. We are looking forward to working with other lead coaches throughout the UK who will offer their own insight into the game. Please feel free to email anything you would like us to look at from adding more spin to your forehand, to doubles tactics and positioning.

The new option is to challenge someone to a “Friendly”. Friendly matches will register on your matches played but offers social players the chance to simply hit some balls for fun.
