It can be difficult initially for young players to understand all of the advantages of top spin for them. We demonstrate how you can help players develop topspin. The key to this quick fix is to think about top spin in “levels” depending upon where you are on the court. Helping players with their top spin couldn’t be easier than with Nigel’s quick fix drill!
