Tennis Pro Kate Dieveney gives us this weeks tennis ‘Tip of the Week’ with the Overhead Smash.

Video transcript:

Hi my name is Kate, and I’m here at the Tennis Center Sand Point.

I’m going to give you the tennis tip of the week, working on the “overhead smash”.

All right, a good thing to remember when you’re hitting your overhead smash, instead of preparing like your would for a serve, coming down by your feet, you want to take your hands straight up over your head like a you are surprised. Don’t forget that your left arm (or your right if you are left handed) is your radar, pointing at the ball.

You go straight up and “snap” you bring it down.

That was your tennis tip of the week.
