Take Taylor's blindfold challenge
Around the Academy:

Take Taylor Dent's blindfold serving challenge
Hi I'm Taylor Dent and this is my Sport Academy training challenge.

When serving, you should aim be so accurate with your ball toss that you can do it with your eyes closed.

So let's do exactly that.

Watch my challenge

I'm going to hit twenty serves but I'm not worried where the ball goes.

If it hits the strings, then the toss is spot on. But if it hits the frame it doesn't count!!

When I tried it I scored 15 out of 20 and no injuries!!!

But I reckon you can match me.

Good luck - and no cheating - keep those eyes closed!



Taylor's fast facts
Lives: Huntingdon Beach, California
