tennis-cliniclightredlinesmallThameside Tennis blog’s new series continues to try to help you to improve your weekend’s tennis. We will provide links to good videos and tips on strokes, footwork, warm-ups and practice.

As we saw last week pronation is a snap of the wrist or twisting the forearm as you hit the ball. This is how to hit faster serves so why not practise it.

Pronation: snap of the wrist – i.e. twisting the forearm as you hit the ball.
