Tennis With Salsa
Coach Dan Teaches the Volley on YouTube

Few coaches would argue that you can't improve your game without the right foot movement. Getting those feet in rhythm and keeping them moving can definitely help your play. One coach is proving that point further by combining a tennis lesson with Salsa dancemusic.

This is Coach Dan Aronovic's second free tennis lesson video. It is a short, funny and entertaining lesson on how to play the net in tennis. “The volley has become a 'lost art' in tennis, with most pro players slamming the ball from the backcourt.” Coach Dan said. “But as Wimbledon shows us, more players will come to net because of the low bounce on grass. My volley instruction is modeled on the classic volleys of players like Billie Jean King, Stan Smith, Margaret Court and John Newcombe. I wanted to pass on this lost art of the volley to the current generation.”

“The idea of reaching a wide audience is exciting, and the internet is a wide-open teaching forum,” remarked Coach Dan. “The lessons I have given to my private students have worked very well as I try to simplify the tennis strokes so everyone can do it. I am happy to say that I have received thousands of positive comments about my Tennis Serve video from all over the world. This doesn’t replace a private tennis coach, but it does provide a thorough explanation for those players who want a different approach to hitting the ball. My affiliation with Own the Zone who make the very popular OTZ band vibration dampener allows me to get my instruction out to the masses.”

The full 30 minute lesson by Coach Dan Aronovic is available for download on Own The Zone for a cost of $9.95. It provides drills, tactics and winning points at the net and is the second in a series of lessons by OTZ, which also sells band vibration dampeners (used by Maria Sharapova, Andy Roddick and Bernard Tomic), as well as the technically cool Rudy Project sunglasses.
