The investigator selected nineteen students on university as subjects. The age group was 21 to 28 years, as per the university record. Experimental group which was under 6 weeks of shadow training. In order to find out the significant difference the collected data was statistically analyzed by applying ’t’ test and the level of significance was fixed at 0.05 level of confidence. the obtained mean value for pre test is 44.79and post test is 60.78. The obtained ‘t’ ratio 4.78 is higher than the table value hence, the obtained ‘t’ is significant. Based on the result we understood that forehand shadow practice is improving the forehand skill for young tennis players.
