I. INTRODUCTION

Footwork is a basic foundation that is very important for every child to be able to play tennis games easily. Based on the observations and experiences of researchers in the lectures of sports students at the Faculty of Sport Science, Padang State University, it can be seen that in terms of speed and footwork in tennis lectures, they have not been able to show optimally. This situation has an impact on the results of the stroke technique taught because when hitting the body it is never in the comfort zone to execute the ball correctly. Though Footwork is an important factor in an effort to master a sport, because with Footwork a person can always be in a favorable position to execute certain sports techniques.
