Tennis Speed & Agility Drills

Speed and agility are very important in tennis. They play an important role in shot preparation, as they allow you to quickly get into the right position and prepare an effective shot. A quick reaction time is also beneficial in tennis, as it is often a matter of reacting quickly to your opponent’s shots. Agility is especially important when playing at the net, as you need to move forward and back quickly to block or play volleys and lobs.

In addition, agility and speed are also important for injury prevention. Good agility and quickness training can prevent injuries that can result from sudden stops and starts or unnatural movements.

In summary, agility and speed are critical in tennis to play effectively and perform well on the court. Targeted practice may help to improve these skills and thus improve one’s game.
