3D KINEMATIC ANALYSIS OF THE THREE MAIN STROKES IN PADDLE TENNIS MOTOR PATTERNS
Keywords: Biomechanics, 3D Kinematics, Sport Technique, Paddle Tennis.
AbstractPaddle tennis coaches are lacking of scientific support in order to devise the most effective individual training program of stroke technique. Therefore, 30 kinematics and the temporal structure of the movements of three paddle tennis strokes have been analysed. Specifically, they have been calculated spatial-temporal variables of two successful trials of three main strokes (tray-smash, Hook-smash and Exit-wall drive) performed by a world class player.
