Tennis: Backhand rally with alleys

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

DESCRIPTION

Coach rallies with a player using only backhand cross-court shots. Player tries to hit all the balls deep into the zone. Coach tries to put as many balls as possible behind the sideline to force the player to hit from the doubles alley.

COACHING POINTS

Simple cross-court rally is a drill that can be used at all levels of performance. Beginners start with the focus on consistency while more advanced players should be challenged with specific tactical approach to this drill.

In this drill player works on depth, consistency and placement of the backhand stroke. Coach pushes the player to hit from the doubles alley so she has to learn how to execute good backhand cross-court while leaving the whole court open. This drill reflects the situations that players are going to face in a real match.
