Tennis: In And Out With The Wall

Your tennis drills are extremely useful coaching tools.
Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Player stands facing the wall and hits forehand volleys against the wall. After each hit, the player moves forward and closer to the wall. Once at the wall, the player continues to hit the ball against the wall but now moves back to their starting position. The aim is for the ball to not touch the floor.

COACHING POINTS

It is important that players understand the concept of moving while being at the net because lack of knowledge can result in losing many points because of the poor positioning. Moving forward is a crucial part of the net game in singles and doubles while movement back is an important part of doubles game. Watching the best doubles players in the world (Bryan brothers, Alexander Peya, Radek Stepanek), it is clearly visible how big a role footwork plays in the tennis game.
