I would like to ask pros, what they think about our club tennis training lessons. We are a team of 7 women (age 30 - 50) and having "training lessons" once a week, one hour. Our new pro is very nice and she is making a lot of effort, and she is doing a lot of further training to improve herself regularly. But I'll give you three examples what the training is: 1. Say, we are practicing on forehand: we are all standing in a row, the first runs forward, hits one forehand, runs to the side of the court, does some exercises there (like sidesteps, jumping, etc.), runs back to the end of the row, and when your go comes again, you'll have one forehand stroke again, run away….. and so on…. 2. Service: you have to make two serves, have to run around the whole court, have another two serves, run around the whole court … and so on… 3. Practicing match situations: 3 against 4, you stand in a row, you have only one stroke, run away sideward, back to the row, have another one stroke… and so on…. What do you think about a training like this? It this 'normal tennis training'? After one hour training lesson I normally feel like after a good workout in the gym, but I never have the feeling, I actually learn about 'tennis'. You never come into a rally, because you always have only one stroke. Personally I don't find it useful in any way, and I cannot not improve my technique. The pro is correcting a lot though, but when my turn is finally again, I have forgotten most of it. Maybe I expect too much, but I had another pro before, who did a fantastic training in a group of four, which was completely different. My team mates, though, like the training, they say, it is funny. I would like to hear other opinions. And what could be improved? Better, more useful exercises for groups for example. Thanks a lot.
