Best Tennis Training Equipment & Tennis Training Aids

Over the years, we’ve tested a ton of tennis training equipment and have developed a best-of-list that can help you take your game to the next level.

There is a fundamental truth in tennis everyone can relate to. Everyone wants to improve their game sooner or later when they feel it has reached a plateau! Your game as a whole can be flawed, individual strokes, or both. Each one of us learns most efficiently in one of the three predominant learning styles or a combination: visual seeing, kinesthetic feeling & auditory hearing!

Interestingly, nearly 100% of tennis players learn best in situations and with resources that resonate with our visual and tactile senses. It’s also interesting to note that coaches and teaching professionals use the verbal-auditory learning style for about 90% of their sessions, which is simply ineffective for instructing and coaching sports.

The proper tennis training aid accelerates learning through kinesthetic (feeling) and visual (seeing) teaching techniques. Here are the best tennis training aids that I use in my own sessions:
