DESCRIPTION

  • Player rallies with coach from the baseline on the ad side.
  • Player hits 2 backhands cross-court.

  • Player steps in and hits forehand drive inside out and continues the rally.

In this drill player develops transition skills. From rallying using backhand stroke to using higher ball to attack with forehand drive player becomes aware of different tactical situations that happen during the point. Proper focus, footwork and spin control are needed to execute these exercise successfully so coach should pay attention to the mistakes player makes and give feedback about the reasons of low quality. For more advanced players coach can redesign the drill and hit high ball only after player hits 3 deep balls in a row.
