Across the world, tennis as a competitive sport, is loved by many people. In the process of tennis playing, athletes are required to have strong physical capacity as well as strong mentality to resist pressure. If the athletes themselves have poor physical instantaneous force and endurance capacity, the performance of tennis sports will be greatly affected. Nowadays, core strength training has become a necessary training means and content for many competitive sports, and people have gradually realized that core strength not only has positive effects in the fields of fitness and rehabilitation, but also has a very important role in the field of competitive sports. In this study, core strength training is briefly analyzed, and then the significance of the core strength training for tennis sports is analyzed. The effects of implementing core strength training and routine training on the athletic capacity and core stability of adolescent tennis players are studied. Through periodic training, it is learned that the specialized tennis sports abilities of the experimental group gain an advantage over the control group (P < 0. 05); the core stability capacity of the experimental group has obvious advantages over the control group(P <0.05). Core strength training plays a significant role in strengthening adolescent tennis sports abilities, especially in terms of speed, strength durability and body stability. The effect from applicating core strength training method is especially prominent. It is hoped that this can provide an operative reference for the improvement of the competitive capability of adolescent tennis sports.
