How To: Practice forehand pivot and shoulder turn in tennis

Practice forehand pivot and shoulder turn in tennis

Welcome to a tennis lesson from FuzzyYellowBalls, the the best place to learn how to play tennis online. Our free video tennis lessons teach you how to play the game in a new way that combines technical analysis, visual learning, and step-by-step progressions.

The first thing all tennis professionals do when they hit a forehand is pivot and turn their shoulders. This motion is how you start your forehand and you have to do it every single time you hit the shot. A key concept to take away from this video lesson is that the pivot and shoulder turn starts your tennis racket backswing by virtue of your shoulder turn. Your arms SHOULD NOT be doing the work to get the racket back at this point in the forehand.
