Groundstroke tip, Forehand tennis swing

Groundstroke tip, Forehand tennis swing
Don’t wait to long to get your tennis racquet back, you want the racquet back by the time the ball crosses the net, I prefer a setback swing rather then a loop swing, the above tip works for both tennis swings.

Don’t snap the wrist over; topspin is not created from here but rather by the hitting the ball out in front of the front foot in a low to high tennis swing.

On the finish I like to complete my tennis swing looking much like a golfer with my racquet resting on my opposite shoulder, for the right handed tennis player, finishing on the left shoulder and depending on how much time a player has to hold the finish remain there for a second or two. In practice I like to have my players hold this for several seconds to exaggerate the proper finish.

Doubles tennis matches, Atlanta Round Robins: a great way to play tennis

Looking for a no fuss tennis doubles match, Atlanta tennis centers offer Round robin co-ed double tennis matches, here is a list of the local tennis centers with contact info:
The premise is that you don't need a partner but to just call in and make a reservation and then just show up ready to play
Bitsy grant tennis center Friday 7:00-9:00pm at the tennis center, mention and she will take $2 off the regular price of $8, Mary Craven770.662.6162, Tennis center 404.609.7193
Chastain Tennis Center, off of Roswell road 404.255.3210, Friday’s 7:00-9:00pm

BlackBurn Tennis CenterTennis Coaching and instruction, Round Robins 770.451.1061, Friday’s 7:00-9:00, Sunday’s 6:00-8:00

Peidmont Tennis Center Midtown Atlanta 404.853.3461Tennis instruction and Alta Leagues, not sure if there doing a round robin right now.

All a person has to do is call the numbers above and check and see if the round robin doubles matches are happening and they will take your reservation. They will ask for your level of play, if not sure just tell the person what you can do and they will plug you into the appropriate slot in the latter. Generally a expert player is a double AA player and a player just starting out would be a C level player.
