Kittens and Mittens

Another mash-up today. Title contributed from one of my students - thanks, Zeb! Super flexible, fun for any age and ability. You will need some extra equipment: cones, spots, and some random way of generating low numbers such as dice or playing cards.

Players will hit from yellow cones.
Coach will feed from near/target side.
Set up two cones anywhere you want the players to hit from (yellow cones in photo). At net for working on volleys, at service line for approach shots, baseline for groundies, etc. Cones should be 4-6 feet apart forming a 'goal'.

Winner Take All

Winner Take All is a mash-up of several different games. I am sure you will recognize a few of them. I got the inspiration for it one morning while brushing my teeth. That 2 minute timer on the electric toothbrush sometimes seems like an eternity!

March Drill Contest

March is here, which puts me in a festive mood as I hate cold weather, and March means cold weather is on its way out! Let's celebrate with a contest. Send me your favorite junior tennis drill. I'll post them here. At the end of the month, I'll hold a drawing from the names of everyone who submitted a drill. Yes, you can submit more than one, and I'll enter your name once for every drill submitted. Winner receives a Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center logo hat or tennis towel, depending on winner preference.

On your March, get set, go!
