Serena Williams’ younger sister, 41, appeared to be having fun while working while smiling as she interacted with the equipment.
Venus began her 30th year on the WTA Tour in January after receiving a wild card into the Auckland Open main draw and won her first round match.
She lost in the first round at the Rosmalen Grass Court Championships to 17-year-old Céline Naef and won her first match at 43 when she beat 31-year-old Camilla Giorgi in three sets at the 2023 Birmingham Classic.
Venus earlier this month lost in the first round of Wimbledon against Elina Svitolina, 6-4, 6-3, after her comeback was ruined after she was injured during a nasty fall early in the match.

‘The grass is going to be inherently slippery. You are going to fall at some point. It was just bad luck for me,” the former world number one told reporters later.
‘I started the game perfectly. I was literally killing it, then the weed killed me.
Venus, whose last Wimbledon title came in 2008 against her sister Serena, won the first two games but appeared to be in serious trouble in the next when her bandaged right knee buckled under her as she moved to intercept a volley.
The Center Court crowd winced as she collapsed to the grass, but after she staggered back to her chair and received treatment, the old warrior spirit kicked in and she fought on.
Venus, who also won the title in 2000, 2001, 2005 and 2007, went down hard, unleashing some thunderous blows to win back two games and hint at a comeback. She stormed away, waving what might have been a last goodbye to the crowd.
When asked if she had considered retiring after her slip, Venus said her only thought had been to try to find a way to win.
“Try to fight to live another day,” he said.

Venus and Serena were trained by their father Richard Williams, who was played by Will Smith in the 2021 biopic King Richard.
Will, 54, won an Oscar for his work on the film, which was also nominated for Best Picture.
The 94th Academy Awards were marred when Will slapped host Chris Rock after the comedian made a joke about the actor’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith.
As a result, Will was banned from the Oscars for 10 years.
