Tennis: Coaching Notes

Dick Moss, Editor, PE

Coaching in the middle of a tennis (or badminton) game may not be legal in your league. But that doesn't mean you can't have a tactical impact during your players' games.

From experience, you'll know which aspects of your players' games need bolstering when they play. Discuss this with them before the game, then place little “reminder” notes on their racquet bag or cover.

During changeover breaks, your players will be able to see your pre-discussed advice and alter their game accordingly.
