How to Improve Your Tennis Game
1. Get a good grip on your racquet and hold it loosely at the base of the grip
2. Keep your thumb on the top of your racquet, not wrapped around it
3. Angle your body away from the ball when you are about to hit it
4. Keep contact between your feet and the ground as you hit the ball
5. Keep a level stance on both feet, with one foot supporting more weight than the other
6. Position yourself so that you are closer to where you want to hit
7. Use a softer grip for lobs and topspin; use a firmer grip for slice
Tennis is a competitive sport that could keep you in shape and improve your hand-eye coordination. It also helps you develop patience and focus.
You can play tennis outside on a court or inside on an indoor court. When playing outside, there are various types of surfaces to play on depending on the climate and the season. You can also play the game inside with equipment such as a net, racquet, and ball.
Play tennis by throwing the ball over the net with your racquet to your opponent’s side of the court (also called “service”). Then try to hit it over their side of the net before they hit it back across (also called “returning”).
