Abstract

Objectives: The objective of this study is evaluating the effect of imagery on beginner tennis players’ forehand drive skill. Methods: In this study, 32 beginner tennis players, whose ages ranged from 20 to 22 yr, recruited as purposive random sampling, were divided into two groups. Sixteen beginner tennis player were in the experimental group and sixteen beginner tennis player were in the control group. The experinmental group received both imagery and technical practice and the control group performed technical practice only without received imagery. Both groups performed forehand drive test (hewitt tennis test), pre- and post-intervention. Changes in performance (pre- vs. post-intervention) of each group were analyzed using paired t-test and independent t test. Results: The forehand drive skill (p=0.002) of the eksperimental group increased significantly. The control group showed increases in the forehand drive skill (p=0.026). independent t-test analysis showed a significant (p= 0,021) different mean between experimental group and control group. The result of data analysis indicated that the experimental group had increasing the forehand drive skill higher than control group. Conclusions: imagery can improve forehand drive skill. Imagery can be implemented as alternative training to improve tennis skill performance
