BALL CONTROL TEST

 
Impact Accuracy, as discovered in your FREE TEST, it is essentially matter of coordination, a pre-condition to the next key factor: EFFECTIVENESS. We can simply define it, in tennis, as the ability to keep the ball in play (ball control). Of course age, phase of development and level of abilities (physical, technical, tactical and mental) will determine the accuracy, the speed and the variety of shots you are able to master, according to the situations.

 the main goal of each player is to consistently become a much better version of him/her self.

BALL CONTROL

This ability depends essentially on yourself, it is a mix of: understanding what you can do in a given situation (tactics/shot selection/dexterity), proprioception (your  ability to master your movements), ball feel (the ability to sense and control the ball through your racquet's swings).

It is a simple test that can be performed in less than 30 minutes with the help of a sparring/coach and someone who check the time with a stop watch.

EFFECTIVENESS

The concept of effectiveness goes beyond the one of ball control, which is a combination of physical and technical skills, Actually it includes other abilities, the main one being the ability to master your emotions, so express your best, almost at anytime.

Human body reacts responds to inputs with a 

combination of multiple dynamic integrated systems, which, all together, determines the outcome.  A combination of personal individual characteristics, beliefs, habits developed, this ones mainly developed training and competing .
