Lets gather great ways to practice tennis in these virus times

I can hear hordes of football fans chanting 'sign him up' - seriously that requires extraordinary technique and control. Did you ever play?
No, except for playing on the street with neighbours I've never played. What about you? Judging from your ball pickup video I'd say definitely.

Deleted, might post later :)

I will do my best to find a good one every day, and Rodger in the snow was a better one.

Also please share your findings.

FML the curb stopped the rally just in the right moment. Tried to hit the cam, helicopter...

Why 15 minutes, Mr. Warhol? This is the minute of my life!

Nice skills mate - you just need to get lobbed in matches more often, they wont stand a chance. That tweener looks good!

Thanks!

Hey, how are you doing? I hope you'll post another video (with your son?) soon! I'm stuck in my comfort zone and need some ideas.

On the mend thank you - we are thinking of some ideas possibly some table tennis - did you see my rematch with my son using pans instead of rackets? Tragic ending. Also may have an edgy keepy up challenge vid to come as well.

Stay safe my friend and keep these posts coming - you've got some real skills going on.

Good to hear!

Yes, I saw the rematch and that's exactly the stuff that I can enjoy a lot. No fancy gear, use whatever has mass, maybe a flat surface (or sometimes not) and try to find a way to play. The only way to understand our physics engine, IMO. Your son is cool and I think he's probably a mental beast and obviously very skilled. Both of you actually. Man, no joke, I actually thought about your post about kids and learning while hitting against the wall - I really like your attitude a lot and I'll try to learn from it.

Thank you, stay safe too and keep posting!

OK here goes - edgy keepy ups challenge. Using just your racket edge keep the ball off the ground for as many strokes as possible. Warning in advance of the retro 80's shirt again - same day I promise. I managed 31 in this vid and have yet to beat that. To be believed you MUST post your keep ups! Good luck.


Those wide beamed frames would be a real plus in this...

IRATA!

Grande! Two contacts/sec! That should be an extra challenge. This is going to be tough tomorrow...

Thanks, friend!

Keep the kids happy and our sports future is safe. I definitely feel its my duty to try and make my sons journey as challenging and pleasurable as possible. Thanks again for those kind words and enjoy the time you have playing with your family - precious mate.
