Here are reasons why it is so important:
- After an injury or a break, it is important to spend ten minutes at least each day going through the strokes.
- Be patient, don't rush, go over the basics of the stroke before starting to hit. It may take 3 or 4 practices before you feel confident again.
- If your shot is accurate consistently that is a good guide to how the technique is progressing. In fact solo practice needs to be part of our regular training routine.
- It stops the bad habits creeping in.
- Bad habits creep up on us because when we are under pressure our footwork and swing get rushed so much we develop bad habits, eg flicking the wrist, looping the backswing, jerking etc.
- Spend a little more time on the weaker aspects of your game.
- Be sure to concentrate on the forehand and backhand side for all shots. Mark target areas on the walls and floor to make practice more challenging.
- If you play yourself, you are sure to win!
