Tennis Shots

Hi y’all! I’m back again to talk more tennis! We’ve already gone over some basic scoring and court surfaces so today I’m going to teach y’all about the three basic shots that are used by a tennis player. Ready or not, here we go!

 

The Serve – This tennis shot is used to start each point that is played for in a tennis match. To serve the ball a player lightly tosses the ball over their head and then tries to hit it over the net. The player who is serving must hit the ball into the service box diagonally across the net from them. The ball can not touch the net on a serve. The player serving gets two chances to get their serve in. If they can’t, then a point is awarded to their opponent. Each tennis player serves every other game during a set.

 

The Forehand – This is often a tennis players best shot. The forehand shot is when a player hits the ball while swinging the racquet with the palm of their hand facing the net. If a player is right handed they would have the racquet in their right hand (or paw in my case). If the player is left handed they would have the racquet in their left hand. Forehands can also be hit using both hands.

 

The Backhand – This tennis shot is often a bit harder to master. The backhand shot is when a player hits the ball while swinging the racquet with the palm of their hand facing away from the net. If a player is right handed they would have the racquet in their right hand. If the player is left handed they would have the racquet in their left hand. Backhands, just like forehands, can also be hit using both hands.

 

There are a lot of different ways to hit these tennis shots, but we will have to go over that another time. I’ve got a tennis match to play!
