Basic Exercise For Tennis Training

When training for tennis, one must run himself until he falls down. Well, not literally, but it is very important to be able to sprint and have good stamina. Half of your game is being able to make it to the ball, not just slamming it into the corner.

We know quite a few people who can hit the ball quite well but can’t make it there sometimes. Likewise, I know some people who can make it to the ball but can’t hit it. Both parts are equally important, but you can’t have one without the other.

On days that you aren’t playing, you should do some basic conditioning:

  • Run (it’s best to run up some hills)
  • Sprint some
  • Jump rope (this one is quite convenient, works best with weighted jump ropes.I suggest you do this the most)
  • Draw lines about fourteen feet apart, time yourself from 30 seconds to 1 minute, and see how many “line taps” can do
  • Buy an exercise ladder (about $20 at Walmart) and do various exercises, as can been seen in 
  • Lastly, make sure to stretch

We are guilty of this and don’t conditional on some days, but when we play, we can feel the change in the way we move. 


Drill, drill, drill. Hit as many backhands, forehands, and volleys as you can. Hit them until your arms fall off. 

  • Practice placement, hitting a forehand in a certain spot until you can do it every time
  • One effective way to practice the second serve is to take a towel, kneel down on one knee, and practice your spin serve by hitting it high above the net.
  • Another way to get your spin serve over the net is (on an outside court) to practice hitting it over the fence. This method works quite well.

These are all the things we can think of right now.

Hope we helped you.
