Coach’s Tip: How to Get Back Into the Swing of Things
-Kim Somerville, Tennis Professional, Mill Creek Tennis Club

Contact Coach Kim at drkimsomerville@aol.com or call (425) 314-5929 to schedule a private lesson.
Rates: $65 members, $80 non-members.

WARM UP, not five minutes of hitting but a real dynamic warmup, work up a little sweat (a nice glow). Wake up those tennis muscles. Twenty minutes of warmup should prepare the body for some good tennis. Shadow swing all strokes, 20 forehands, backhands, serves, volleys and overheads, add the footwork before adding the ball.

Now hit the courts. Don’t go all out, start with some simple hitting drills. Some ideas: Play some short court/mini tennis, and not just 5 minutes. Play a set of mini tennis, underhand serve to start off point, use only deuce court and then ad court. Get use to feeling the racquet in your hand again, the ball control and your feet moving on the court.

Try a 10/20/100 ball rally, a 10-ball rally getting the ball past the base line every shot before offensive play, try cross court only, down the line only. Not challenging enough, try hitting alley to alley, down the line and crosscourt. I’m sure you get the picture.

When serving for the first time, ease up! Work on placement, spins, consistency. Add the power later on. Lastly and probably most importantly, cool down after playing. Do your static stretches. Your body deserves a good slow easy stretch after it’s been shocked into activity, and it will reward you with a little less stiffness the next day. Welcome back to the courts everyone. We are looking forward to getting back to the swing of things, hope to see you there.
