How to Improve Your Tennis Game

by Siraj

Tennis is a tough sport, don't let anyone tell you differently, but as hard as it is, you can improve your game right now, all you have to do is continue reading and if you are truly interested in getting better, do one or all of the recommended steps.



Practice, although just playing is not enough; you have to play with the right people, play often, and play under the right learning atmosphere. Just getting together with your regular partner 1-3 times a week is not enough and may even hurt your game; it will most definitely stop you from improving. You will make the same mistakes over and over, and the game will continue to be a major challenge.

  • Play more than one player

  • Play against more than one style

  • Play against better players

  • Treat matches as tennis lessons
  • When practicing, practice with intent--pick specific things to work on and practice your weakest shots


Sign up for a summer tennis camp. A good camp will have:

  • professional tennis instructors who are career tennis instructors

  • instruction for every level of player
  • low instructor-to-camper ratio

  • plenty of competitive match play

  • at least three hours of instruction per day in addition to match play


Play under pressure, where if you don't win you will lose something, and if you win you will win something; there must be a reward and punishment.The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat goes a long way at improving your tennis game.
