Michael Center, who has been a successful collegiate tennis coach at Kansas, TCU and now Texas, has put together a series of drills used daily at Texas practices. His goal is to make his players react to the ball more quickly, develop consistency, and improve their footwork and control. The video begins with an essential part of any practice, the warm-up. Center has included a half-dozen of his favorite warm-up drills; he generally spends 25-40 minutes with these drills at the onset of each practice. The next 10 drills covered are the "meat and potatoes" of Center's practice sessions. the drills he refers to as "Recognition, Reaction, and Repetition" drills. With consistent practice, these drills will allow your team a heightened ability to make decisions on where to return a shot, and offer help on footwork, forehand, backhand, and the approach shot (for better consistency and control). The drills are appropriate for teams at any level and offer an ideal drill-based practice plan.
