Tennis: Interception at the net

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

DESCRIPTION


-Players start in regular doubles positions.
-The service is hit down the centre and the return diagonally.
-Servers are given up to 4 attempts to get the ball in.
-The net player attempts to intercept the return and kill it down the middle.

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.
