Single handed backhand for juniors...
Something I've been pondering for the last couple of days, so I thought I'd put it out there to the coaches (and others) on the forum...
With the advent of Mini Tennis, Quickstart, Hotshots, Play+Stay etc etc why do we not teach single handed backhands at Red (I am, of course, using 'we' as a gross generalisation!) All the traditional reasons for not teaching single handed at that age (Red ball is 8&u) are taken away by the mini tennis system, yet the vast majority of coaches still teach 2 hands without fail.
I am considering an experiment!
What are your thoughts?
Do you expect me to run forward and get it in one bounce when I am hitting? - Sureshs 2014
