Hey there, coaches and tennis enthusiasts!
The slice backhand is a beautiful work of art. It is the number one requested stroke to learn from my recreational clientele.
When players take matters into their own hands and try to teach themselves specialty strokes like the slice backhand, it can get ugly quickly! Not to mention severe injuries to elbows and wrists from using improper grips.
My mission is to teach the everyday player the fundamentals of every shot so they can efficiently learn to compete quickly and enjoyably. In this video, I’ll demonstrate the 4-step progression to the slice backhand for the everyday player. It breaks down the stroke in a detailed process that is relatable to all levels.
