    • Description:

      Aim to get low & compact in the shot, giving yourself a stable base to hit out from. Practice working off of either leg, to give more options in a match. See Jesse Engelbrecht's 'Back Corner' blog and playlist for further guidance<

    • Exercise Notes:Hit 50 drives to yourself in a continuous rolling format in the back backhand corner, and then hit a further 15 deep backhand drives off of a self-feed from the T as described in Jesse Englebrecht's 'Back Backhand Corner' blog/playlist

    • Minutes on exercise:10:00

    • Description:

      Place some balls down as markers for you to focus your movements on. Think about your pathway to and from the ball, practicing working off of both feet. Try and work with rhythm and flow, and replicate how you'd move in a match environment

    • Exercise Notes:After your set of drives, go into 3 sets of 10 ghost movements on the BH side of the court, with 30secs rest between each. Upon completion go back into hitting drives as before, followed by repeating the ghosting again. Complete 3 sets in total
