Training /  Solo - Patterns of Play and Shot Partnerships with Joel Makin

    • Description:

      Play a few short drives as feeds. Then every few shots get into the body shape for a trickle boast and then play either a trickle boast or a straight drive. 

    • Exercise Notes:Do for 5mins on one side and then swap

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Using drives down the middle and off the back wall (varying the width) as a feed, look to practice partnering up the long drop when it feels appropriate.

    • Exercise Notes:Do for 5mins on one side and then swap

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Using this drill, look to shorten the swing and use a lot of variation on the front wall. The key to this is keeping a short swing and being able to play long from this swing

    • Exercise Notes:Do for 5mins on one side and then swap

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Playing consecutive drives, look to now partner in a 2-wall working boast when you feel it is appropriate and easy enough to play. Try and be sure to disguise the shot as much as possible

    • Exercise Notes:Do for a total of 10mins

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Similar to the last drill, but rather than playing a boast, now look to use the LIFT cross court as your partnership shot

    • Exercise Notes:Do for a total of 10mins

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Feeding yourself a boast to the opposite side each time, look to partner showing the short ball but hitting long. Do ensure you hit some short balls also but this is a great time to bring in some deception also. Have fun!
