Welcome to Season 8, Episode 48 of the ParentingAces Podcast! This week, we are discussing the importance of point construction and how to teach it to developing junior players.

If you've been listening to our podcast for a while, you are already very familiar with Coach Todd Widom and his non-academy approach to helping junior tennis players reach their full potential. In this episode, Todd delves into the idea of point construction - its importance in overall tennis success and the lack of organized instruction around this aspect of the sport. Todd shares specific drills to help young players learn and understand the geometry and physics of a tennis court and tennis ball. This is Must-Listen stuff!

If you would like to contact Todd Widom, you can find him on Facebook and Instagram or email him at todd@twtennis.com.
