If you are changing from an outdoor court to an indoor court, here are tips on how to adjust your gameplay so you can be the best at tennis!
- Hit with more topspin
- You want to hit a ball that is heavy with topspin and go farther in your opponent’s court. Indoor courts produce a smaller bounce, so go for the big shots.
- Use a big and flat serve
- Indoor courts are fast. There is no wind or sun in the way. Hit a big and fast first serve because there is less elemental risk.
- Don’t be afraid to go to the net! Serve and then run to the net to volley. There is a lower bounce produced so you have a higher chance of volleying back and surprising your opponent.
- Sliced backhands
- Use a sliced backhand, one-handed if possible. The sliced backhands produce a very low bounce. Add that to the low bounce produced from indoor courts and you have a winner.
- Blunt return
- When returning a serve, try to “blunt” the serve. This means don’t go for the biggest return you can but instead, make a short and well-placed return.
