Abstract

Previous research suggested that training with stroboscopic glasses has a positive effect on visual processes like online control and transient attention in a laboratory setting. In this study the effect of six stroboscopic training sessions on the groundstroke in skilled youth tennis players was investigated. Controls participated in the same training sessions as the strobe group. The hitting accuracy of the groundstroke in the strobe group improved significantly after stroboscopic training compared to the control group (p <0.05). Therefore, it is concluded that training with stroboscopic glasses has a positive effect on the groundstroke in tennis.
