“Throw & Go” is fun activity for juniors which involves throwing and moving a ball to mimic the movements used in the serve and the forehand and backhand. Not a tennis racket in sight! This activity is a mainstay for coaches teaching juniors and supports tennis coaches education journey and extends your Coach Education training and development.
Watch this fun warm up activity for juniors! The warm-up works with a ball and teaches footwork skills and builds co-ordination to help juniors develop their sending and receiving skills. Not a tennis racket in sight!
We filmed this exercise recently on one of our coach education qualification courses so you may have seen it recently; hands-up if you were there!
This live footage is from Finland where Mark, Director of i2c, is working this week. Lucky Mark! Mark has shot this clip while demonstrating a way to use throwing to practise the serve. The value of this technique is that it lets you set the chopper grip in place, even when you are working with the throw.
