Check out some of the activities below to get inspired!


Improve your consistency and racquet control on your own or with your family! Work to bounce the ball up on your racquet, or even do a trip to see if you can achieve 10 in a row. To work on forehands, hold the racquet palm up. To work on backhands, hold the racquet palm down. 


At Home Footwork

Whether in your backyard, driveway or living room, working on your footwork at home can happen anywhere! Check out these videos from across Net Generation as players work on their quickness and agility.


Hot Hands

Ready to work on hand-eye coordination and reaction time? Grab a family member and try passing tennis balls from left to right, or right to left to improve your skills. Add more tennis balls to your rotation to make it more of a challenge!


Hot Hands with Movement

Had success with the previous hot hands activity? Try incorporating some movement and footwork to take it up a notch!
