How To Play Tennis One-Handed

March 29, 2012 — 2 Comments

Ok, so I realize the title is a bit of a misnomer.

I’ve never played tennis competitively, but I’m not bad. Hopefully this video helps you see how it can be done with one hand.

See. One-handed.

    I had a Dunlop racket similar to your Wilson Pro (the latter was used by John McEnroe) .. so you are in excellent company, Ryan!

    Feel your forehand has great potential, but the backhand needs working on .. and the serve looked very worrying to me .. dangerous for the receiver’s head?

    I do not know about DAD of THE YEAR? What about Sam as SON of THE YEAR?

    Bless you and all your family this Easter, my brother-in-Christ

  2. My son, who is missing his right hand, started playing tennis in 2008 when he was 11. His coach/teacher said he has great natural ability, and he is a great player. he has played on his high school team for two years now, and on winning USTA and ALTA teams here, and is known as a powerful opponent. He puts the ball in the crook of his elbow of his “short arm” and throws it in the air to serve. I am very proud of him.
