Change the Spin - Backhand Slice
Utilise the backhand slice to control the point by mixing up lengths and pace to dictate where your opponent goes.
Coach feeds balls to the backhand side. Player alternates backhand drive and backhand slice in cross court direction.
Building an effective slice is important for any player. Changing the spin and pace are factors that can decide the match's score. Players should be able to execute backhand slice because many players are not used to responding to backspin shots. In this exercise, the coach can see if players feel comfortable with switching the grips (drive vs slice) and if it affects the execution.
