Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 3/7/19 4:25 PM

Winter is coming to a close and that means that outdoor tennis leagues are ramping back up. If you haven’t been keeping up with your tennis exercise routine, now is the time for you to jump back in to keep your competitive advantage. Tennis is a full body exercise, and that means that you need to be working out your entire body, namely your legs, your core, and your shoulders. By having a strong level of fitness as spring rolls in you can help yourself prevent easily avoidable injuries. Chronic injuries like tennis shoulder or tennis elbow are often caused by a lack of support from muscle groups and a lack of stretching and warm ups.

Getting more Power and Speed out of your Forehand

Posted by Five Seasons Family Sports Club on 2/7/19 2:19 PM

Having a strong and efficient forehand is one of the most crucial components of any good tennis game. By mastering this simple stroke, you can greatly increase your power and your overall ball speed. One of the best ways to increase your power and speed is by putting topspin on your shots. Topspin will make the ball accelerate upon contact with the ground, not only increasing your ball speed, but also making your shots vastly less predictable. Your forehand is one of the most frequently used shots in tennis so it is important to spend time building this fundamental skill. If you would like to learn from an expert or join a tennis class, come into your local Five Seasons Family Sports Club today!
