Many of our members and customers will already be familiar with our hugely popular Developing the Serve program. Today we introduce the latest instalment, Developing the serve with green ball players.
We use a tactical approach to structuring serve coaching; it gives you great teaching points for the tennis serve for green ball players and provides you with strategies to get your players serving with a purpose. We highlight what’s required to serve effectively on the green court – clearly highlighting the changes from Orange Ball.
If you only work with green ball players – you don’t need to watch the Red Ball and Orange Ball program; these videos stand alone to provide you with a rock-solid foundation for transitioning green ball players to the requirements of the serve at full ball and the performance level. However, if you are looking to follow the program from start to finish, this Green Ball program builds on the learning process developed in the Red Ball and Orange Ball programs.
We’ve split the program into 9 sessions so that you can work through at your own pace. So now there is nothing stopping you! Get ready to build your own exceptional program for teaching the serve to green ball players.
