  1. Using cones on a tennis court is a good way to make a tennis player agility better. Place the cones on the tennis courts at random places.  Say a series of numbers out loud to the tennis player. The goal is to have each player run around the cone, matching the exact number in the correct order.
  2. The agility T-drill is another great way to increase a tennis players agility.  Set up cones using a T formation. The cones need to represent the letter T. Have the players sit on the ground cross legged. The players will have to get up and run back and forth tracing the T formation throughout.

  5. Another good way to add more agility to your tennis game would be to do tennis line drills. The player will have to run in straight lines. The lines will be horizontal and vertical. It is important for the player to switch the line he runs each time. The pattern should be horizontal then vertical.
