The Main Strokes of Tennis

  1. Serve
  2. A serve is the starting point for a match. This could be one of the most important shots of a match. To make a serve you must throw the ball up in the air and proceed to hit it to the opposite side of the court in your opponents box. After that, your opponent will return your serve and the rally begins.

  3. Forhand
  4. The forhand shot is with your dominanat hand, either right or left, and you hit it one handed and follow through. This is usually the easiest shot to make during a match.

  5. Backhand
  6. The Backhand is the shot you make with the not dominant side of your body and you use both hands to follow through. Some people prefer to just use one hand but begginners usully start off by using both.

  7. Volley
  8. A volley is made when you go up to the net and hit the ball without it bouncing first. There can be a backhand volley or a forehand volley.
