Teaching tactics in tennis. A constraint-based approach proposal
Keywords:methodology, dynamical systems, learning, exercises
The aim of this article is to provide a structure framed in constraint-based approach, which will help coaches to classify tactical exercises, and in turn, serve as a reference for the creation of new exercises depending on the objectives and the game situation they wish to develop. By way of example, a proposal is made for exercises for the serve situation, with the intention that these can serve as inspiration for coaches to create their own.
