“The number one mistake at the net: Over hitting your forehand volley. The Fix: Do not take such a large backswing,” says Gabriel Neacsu, director of tennis at the Club at Boca Pointe, where 16 Har-Tru tennis courts are kept busy with individual and league play.
“Think of your forehand volley as 80% footwork and 20% your racket. Everyone naturally over-hits his or her dominant side. Keep your racket inside your peripheral vision and keep your body moving through the shot. That way the mass of your body will help add power with control to your forehand volley. Also, it is very distracting and intimidating when your opponent sees you moving forward.”
Neacsu oversees a very robust tennis program that offers members a wide variety of opportunities on the 16 well-manicured tennis courts. There is plenty of open play where Neacsu’s staff can help members find games at their own level or help place members at the proper level for men and women’s league play, which includes countywide competitions with other country clubs in the area.
Lessons from the former Romanian doubles champion, or any of his staff, are always available whether it is for beginners or players who need a brush up on one or more aspects of their game.
