Attacking zones – group coaching day

In this group coaching day, you will massively improve the effectiveness of your attacking game by targeting the main attacking zones – the backhand corner, the forehand corner and the crossover position. If you can consistently hit these three zones, your attacks will be much stronger and you’ll win many more points. We will also look at how to hit very wide attacks on both the forehand side and the backhand side. This is an essential session for any player wanting to develop a stronger attacking game.
