Visual Skills: Watch the Ball?
Strategies, v2 n6 p20,22-23 Jun 1989
In tennis as well as in other racket/paddle sports, simply watching the ball does not guarantee success in hitting the ball to the desired location. Teachers and coaches should teach players to integrate available visual, spatial, and kinesthetic information. Several drills for good ball contact are outlined. (IAH)
