Here are three practise progressions whilst hitting a ball against the wall. Perhaps set yourself the target of 10 consecutive shots before moving onto the next stage.

Stage 1 – Hit over the line

The ball can bounce as many times as you like.

Stage 2 – 1 bounce between the lines

Only allow the ball to bounce once and try and keep your shot between the white lines.

Stage 3 – Hitting harder

Place a white line on the floor. Continue to hit the ball after only one bounce, but swing the racket faster to make the ball rebound past the line.


Luckily our neighbours are top draw and always throw wayward balls back!!

Good luck and let us know how you get on or any other ideas of how to keep practising at home.
