I coach a player who, before the forward swing, is raising her elbow up.

What drills or changes in technique could I use to correct this?

  • Watch some videos online so she can improve her technique. Use a soft arm friendly string. – live-love Jun 15 '16 at 14:07
  • @Niall this question is directly related to a specific aspect of a specific sport. It's perfectly on-topic here, more so than it could be on PF.SE. – Nij Sep 4 '16 at 6:49

A simple possible solution is to have the player focus on having the racquethead point upwards at the beginning of the swing. This is impossible with a raised elbow.
