The 4T Wall.

The common Wall and the 4T Wall .

The training at the Wall is currently little used by tennis players, even if all the Teachers know that improves the automation of technical gestures and allows you to do a great aerobic workout to good athletic form.

Leave aside the reasons which led Teachers and Managers of Tennis Clubs to forget about the Wall of training; it would be wasteful and unnecessary.

With the Wall is possible to train all types of gestural technique, improves the sight, the visual responsiveness and the physical reactivity.

The common Wall is a real Wall of concrete with the grid drawn on, the playing area is equivalent to half of the tennis court.  Then we find a real Wall against which to bounce the ball repeatedly during the exercise.
There are exercises that train the footwork movements with short range and long range.
The training is extremely effective with the wall, you can play many more shots in half an hour of what can be done in a three set match and, just because there are no dead time, mental focus is more intense.

The "4T Wall " is formed by two movable walls oriented at right angles and a square playing area with a width variable and directly proportional to the technical level of the player.
With the "Wall 4T" the playing area measures from 16 square meters to a maximum of 120, unlike the tennis court which exceeds 600 square meters.
The "4T Wall", designed for Beginners and Competitive Players of all levels and all ages, is specifically designed to train the player to "feel the movements of the body" to simultaneously implement the "Five fundamental Principles" of the "Theory of push lines". Initially, with the "4T Wall", the player is trained to perform technical movements slowly but at a very high frequency, alternating the forehand at the backhand, with a perpetual motion, focusing on "feeling the movements of the body" in implementing the "Five fundamental Principles".
The player who has learned to "feel the movements of the body" may gradually make shots with greater speed and strength to effectively apply the "Fifth fundamental principle" and give the ball a high speed without much effort and with the absolute control of its trajectory.

The "Modern Tennis" is in fact based on the speed of the ball and its rotations that allow us to obtain trajectories with important perspectives on the field.

With the "Wall 4T" you can also train service and smash with the same methodical application of the "Five Fundamental Principles".

By varying the angle between the two movable walls and the distance between them and the player you have the ability to perform plenty exercises effective, amusing and sometimes even spectacular useful to train all types of technical gesture for all levels of play.

Right by using two movable walls, a peculiarity of the "4T Wall", you can perform many exercises with a great didactic value that would not be feasible with the common wall.

After the Lesson with the Teacher and first to continue with him on other aspects of teaching it is useful to practice exercises with the wall and also on the tennis court.
