Tennis service is an important part of winning a match. This study analyzed the mechanics of tennis serving speed and divided ten tennis players into two groups. One group carried out conventional training, while the other group carried out auxiliary training on shoulders through elastic band besides conventional training. The actions were photographed by cameras and analyzed. The results showed that the throwing height and hitting point height of the two groups improved after the experiment, and p < 0.05 in the comparison between Groups A and B; the ball deflection angle reduced after throwing, but the improvement of Group B was more significant compared to Group A (p < 0.05); the service speed and success rate also significantly improved in Group B, i.e., the performance of Group B was better (p < 0.05). The results show that shoulder training plays a positive role in improving the service speed and the video analysis method is reliable in training, which is conducive to improving the training efficiency.
