    Hi all,

    Do we have any coaches or staff who work in tennis?
    If so, what are your thoughts on tennis movement? Do you coach it? or do you leave that to the tennis coach?

    We work a lot of CoD and linear speed as well as some multi-directional speed. Typically, I would say the tennis coach looks after the tennis specific movement unless there are any glaring inefficiencies where we can work together more closely.

    SO I work with Division 1 Collegiate Womens Tennis. I dont worry about tennis movement, I leave it to the sport coach. I’ve found that we work on Linear accel, COD, and first step agility/reaction.

    Thanks for replying.
    What do you think about conditioning in tennis? I work with youth athletes and find that the coaches (and athletes) drift towards longer steady state running.
    I’ve been playing around with some extensive tempo ideas recently. We’ve dabbled in some longer aerobic intervals. Also used some repeat sprint ability intervals closer to competition.
