Team members should have a good grasp on all strokes and start to work on match play. Developing basic strategy. Players will be trained using dead ball drills, live ball drills and competitive play situations to refine their technical and tactical skills. Players should be comfortable rallying from the baseline.
As we work through the season, the coaches encourage all players to develop their own game. Working on the ability to know when to hit certain shots, mental strength and strategy. Instruction includes on-court technique, footwork and conditioning.
Every player will be given the opportunity to play in a match each week. The players at the top of the ladder will compete against other clubs. Whether playing against another club or fellow teammates, it’s important for the players to use the new skills they have learned on the court.
Rules and Guidelines
