3.0 - 3.5 Live Ball Tuesday 6:00 - 7:30pm

Welcome to Live Ball! Why is it called “live ball,” anyway? That’s because there are 2 types of tennis training, “dead ball” and “live ball.” Dead ball training is a drill in which the coach feeds you a ball, you hit the prescribed shot, and then nothing happens—the “point” is “dead” after you hit, similar to using a ball machine alone. This form of training is great for technical development. Live ball training is real-time point play, initiated by a coach or player feeding or serving the ball. The point is then played out with specific tactical goals in mind. This type of training is great for developing court awareness, positioning and targeting to successfully finish points in match play. You will play hundreds of points in a single 90-minute session, maximizing skills and tactics retention while amping up your cardio endurance!
