Tennis at Home Training-Part of the New Normal?
As more tennis players find themselves back on the court, one of the lessons learned was that home training can be beneficial
It gives you the time and focus to improve your game before you get on the court. During this off-court time we also learned that there are lots of tennis training aids that can help you with this process.
So we took to the parking lot to test out some of the training tools that were sent to us by OnCourtOffCourt. Here are some that we have found.
