Attacking skills – group coaching day

Having a strong and consistent attacking game is essential if you want to compete against stronger players (and dominate weaker players!). During this group coaching day, I will show you how to play a range of attacking strokes, using both your forehand and backhand. We will work on your topspin strokes, smashes, looping backspin and flicking short serves. I will show you how to generate more speed, spin and power and win many more points.
