Tennis: Touch rally cross-court

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player and coach stay close to the net on the deuce sides.
  • Player and coach rally together using only controlled forehand slices.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, player works on feel and control in a rally environment. By staying close to the net, player is forced to use less power to maintain long rally. Additionally this drill highlights control level of the player because the area that players aim at is quite small. To make this drill more competitive, coach can set up cones and award one point for every ball that hits the cone. This motivational factor will positively influence player’s motivation so there is a big chance that player will put more physical and mental effort into this exercise.
