Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Set up with a cone or something similar just in front of the player. The coach feeds the ball to the backhand side, and the player hits a backhand volley to the coach, and steps on the visual target.

COACHING POINTS

Many players struggle with the net game because the only use their upper body. Improper footwork can lead to inconsistent strokes and players losing confidence to approach the net. Players need to understand that volleys have to be performed with the whole body to guarantee the desired results.

In this exercise, the player has a visual target to put their foot on after the shot is made. Stepping is an important part of the correct volley technique, enabling the body to transfer the weight forward and establish a consistent point of contact in front of the body.
