NIEBLAS, J.  and  MOLINA, P.. Systematic review of research on teaching tennis. CPD [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.2, pp.111-124. ISSN 1989-5879.

The present work consists of a systematic review of studies related to training tennis. The articles are identified, categorized and analyzed pointing out their characteristics and synthesizing the main topics and their content. In order to do this, we have looked at two of the databases with greater international recognition, Scopus and Web of Science. A total of 87 scientific articles were selected. The results show quantitative aspects such as the authorship of the articles, the magazines where the articles have been published, the type of research, the techniques used for collecting data or the main research topics. In addition, the work includes a qualitative analysis focused on the content of the 5 themes identified: the implementation of specific tennis skills and the progression in the difficulty of learning tennis, teacher's feedback and methodological guidelines used for training tennis, the use of technological resources in teaching technical skills, psychological training to improve performance, and perceptual anticipation, decision - making and game context. Finally, the work concludes describing some practical guidelines derived from the results of the research that can contribute to the improvement of training tennis.
