Tennis: Strong Volley = Strong Arm

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

  • The coach and player maintain a rally whilst volleying
  • The player puts their non-dominant hand behind the back and hits all the volleys using only their dominant hand

COACHING POINTS

  • In this drill, the player works on their ability to maintain a volleying rally whilst not using their non dominant hand
  • Hitting a one-handed backhand without the support is not an easy task when the rally lasts for several shots
  • Additionally, the player learns how to manoeuvre the racket’s head to create necessary angles to keep the ball in play
  • For more advanced players, the coach can vary their own response and challenge the player by moving him around and forcing to adjust with every shot
