With six WCI communities throughout Florida offering fantastic tennis programs, our love of tennis can't be denied. Throughout the year, our Residents and Members have a number of opportunities to play in great tournaments, Round Robin and Drill Clinics, leisure play with friends and Club Challenge tournaments to show off their superb tennis skills.
That said, it's always good to continue with lessons to improve your game. So, whether you're just getting started in the sport or are a tennis fanatic, we gathered up some of the top tennis tips from our WCI Club Tennis Professionals to share with you below.
- Risky Shots: If you find yourself in trouble when playing a riskier game, fall back to your game that won you the first set so easily. Remember in tennis, high percentage play is the way to go however there are appropriate times during a match, when you can practice risk in order to improve your overall game.
- Playing Doubles: Get your first serves in. Why? Returners respect the first serves and will be conservative with their shots and your partner can do more poaching and faking on the first serve.
- Find Your Rhythm: Next time you play, try to toss slow and swing fast. This will give you time to move the serving arm into position to produce more power, spin and accuracy.
- Repetition: The best way to improve technique is through repetition of the proper stroke. Taking a tennis lesson on a particular skill is a great way to start. The ball machine is another great asset in improving through repetition of the proper stroke.
