Basic serve technique

Home > Articles > Serving guide > Basic technique

This section will teach you the basic technique for each type of serve.

The pages on low serves cover elements shared by flick serves and drive serves. So if you want to learn a backhand flick serve, you should read about the backhand low serve first.

I recommend you start by practising the straight serves. Some wide serves are much more difficult.
