Sažetak

Conventional tennis teaching methods which are based on repetitive exercises
have their limitations which can lead to demotivation and poor learning outcome.
Considering this fact, new game-based teaching methods have been developed.
The aim of this research was to assess the efficiency of the game-based method
in teaching tennis to adult beginners. Eighty-nine second- and third-year
undergraduates at the Faculty of Kinesiology. University of Zagreb were included
in the study, none of which had trained tennis ever before. All underwent a fourweek
tennis training course – one group using the conventional method, other using
the game-based method. Following the course, precision and quality of standard
tennis stroke techniques were assessed. A significantly higher precision was observed
in the game-based group in performing the cross-court forehand and a higher
performance quality of “balance” for all types of strokes, apart from the forehand
volley, and the “movement orderliness” quality of the forehand. Other differences,
although not significant statistically, were consistent in showing superiority of the
game-based method. These results call for future research on larger samples, and
at the same time justify implementing the game-based method in teaching tennis
techniques to adult beginners.
