Hi Coach,

As this might be very simple question but with a high expectation to get an answer .

My son (8yrs) and daughter(5 yrs)  are just beginner and started learning the game but what I see that they lack movements and need your guidance for them to do shadows with  movements.

regards and thanks

Hi Yogesh,

To do shadow play you can imitate any movement that you want to learn or practise.  You are just doing it all without a ball.

The main thing is to make it as realistic as possible.  You can use your imagination to track a ball and even try to get the feel of the ball hitting the racket as you swing.

You can incorporate movement or just stand still and practice the swing.

Take a look at this tutorial we have on Shadow Drills.
