Author(s): Ajay Pratap, Dr. Pankaj Pandey
Abstract: The point to take up this study is to investigate kinematic analysis of backhand drive in tennis. A total of five junior national level tennis players were selected for this study. No statistical analysis was applied since simple subjective analysis (elgon method) was done on the basis of the data obtained from the photographs. Data analyzed through elgon point method and result showed that the subjects who keep the elbow away from the body hit the ball with good linear velocity and also center of gravity falls within the base for maintain the balance.
