1/2 Court Coaching (Red)

Step 1 of the Progressive System is 1/2 Court. The transition to successful 1/2 Court tennis will require a period of skill development where basic co-ordination and cooperative activities will lead to the development of the basic strokes and fundamentals.

TennisPlus+ has been running both 1/2 Court Coaching and 1/2 Court Tournaments since 2008 and because of this is the most experienced coaching entity in Otago in this area.

1/2 Court tennis is played sideways across the court from doubles sideline to doubles sideline (11 metre/36 foot length). An oversize, high density foam ball is used which is easier to visually track, receive, and control, since it flies slower and bounces lower. Players use 19-21 inch racquets (depending on player size) which gives better racquet control. This modified equipment will help develop good biomechanics. Regular rules apply with the exception that the server can serve anywhere in the opponents court (in front of the singles sideline), and the scoring is simplified.

We also run 1/2 Court tournaments on Sunday’s in terms 2/3 and Saturday’s in terms 4/1. Please (Click here)
