Tennis is a sport that can be frustrating or it can be a smooth sailing in the beginning. However, most people have a rough start with their tennis training. The first step is to familiarize yourself with the rules of how to play tennis. Go get yourself an easy to use racquet and some shoes to start playing.
If you have a trainer to help you along the way, you may have a much better time. Of course, there are bad trainers out there that can make it harder for you to learn how to play tennis properly. The environment in which you train is also a large factor in how easy or difficult it will be for you to learn the basics of tennis.
Most beginners will not have any idea of how tennis is learned. Beginners will not know how many balls they must hit before the movement becomes automatic for them. Beginners must learn that the hardest part of tennis is not necessarily the technical but rather the perception of the flight and movement of the ball to a particular spot.
A good trainer will know that the first thing that their beginner must work on is repetition. If you have a good trainer, you will more than likely be hitting balls from the machine for a very long time. If you do not have a trainer, this is the best place for you to start. Hitting the balls that are speeding at you out of the machine will help your tennis swing to become mechanical.
You can also switch up the ball machine to launch the balls at you from different angles so that you can practice your footwork. Practicing your footwork is also a very important factor in your success at tennis.
However, you must swing and hit the balls until you reach the point that you understand the movement of the ball, the movement of your arm, as well as balancing and striking the ball. These movements must be one fluid motion before you should move onto other aspects of training.
You must practice this until it becomes a second nature to you. As a beginner, you must not be easily frustrated by your training. Errors are a perfectly normal part of everyone’s training. A beginner’s errors when learning how to play tennis will be one of two things.
There are errors that are made because you are out of order or synch and there are errors that are caused due to your influence on the results.
The first error is due to a technique not being practiced enough. The more you practice, the less of these errors you will have.
The second error is due to your own judgment errors. For instance, a trainer may tell you to play gently and at the point you may forget to play gently or decide that you do not need to play gently. If you have a good trainer, remember to always listen to them.
