Tennis Drill Demonstration


The deep players rally the ball back and forth between one another.

The blue receiver's partner attempts to intercept the ball down the middle.

Once the ball has been intercepted the point is live.

The players rotate clockwise round the court after 6-8 rallies so that each player gets to play in each position.

Coaching points

This drill is pretty demanding unless the players are very advanced.

The coach might have to adapt as appropriate if the players find the task too demanding.

  • Adaptations can include server being allowed second serves only or that the net players are both allowed to attempt interception anytime during the rally whenever an opportune shot presents itself.
