Week 1 of the Ohio Mega Camps was centered around foundational strokes and footwork. Check out the action and watch the videos!
There are 6 aspects of every stroke. Regardless if you are a beginner or professional, you need to learn these elements of the stroke and be willing to adjust them as necessary during both drills and match play.
Preparation involves seeing what type of shot your opponent did. Without understanding what type of ball is approaching, it is difficult to choose the right shot.
Three months ago, Sarah Jalli was crowned champion of the US Open in Las Vegas for the u11 girls' event! Just after turning 12, she entered the US National Ranking Tournament in Davie, Florida (March 29-April 1). Each player was allowed to enter up to 2 of the events - u12, u13, u15, or u18. Sarah chose to skip the u12 and enter the u13 and u15. First, she played the u15 and finished #10 in the US... not bad. Then she began dominating the u13 with 8 consecutive wins against girls from across the nation. If she finished 1st or 2nd, she would make the US National Team.
