Use a cone to finish your serve

Use a cone to finish your serve

A good follow through on the serve helps with both power and accuracy. But how can you check you're doing it right? Team Bath-MCTA's Academy Head Coach Jim Edgar shows you...

Key points:
Place a cone, drinks bottle or even an empty can of tennis balls outside the foot which sits closest to the centre line, then serve, making sure you hit the object on your way through.
Benefits: Finishing your action completely ensures sound technique and will give you the full power of your serve.
Duration: Five successful serves to each service box.

A special thanks to Head Coach Jim Edgar and Bath Academy for their co-operation.
