Impact Time

Last Updated -

Impact Time is the measure, in seconds, of the time from the end of the backswing, (the lowest point when the racket head is facing down towards the ground), until the racket impacts the ball.

The impact time for professional tennis players will be less than 0.3 seconds.

Tips for improving Impact Time

Bring the racket head up to hit the ball with as much speed as you can while keeping control. Your shoulders will rotate similarly to how they would if you were throwing a ball. To optimize your serve, you should hit the ball at the highest point in the toss that you can reasonably hit it at.
