Tennis Drill Demonstration


In this exercise, the coach feeds all the balls to one side. The player's goal is to alternate shots with higher and lower trajectory over the net, firstly hitting a high shot, followed by a low shot, and this is repeated.

Coaching points

It is really important to control the height of the ball. Players have to be able to go lower over the net (when in offense) or higher over the net (when behind the baseline/defense).


Mix short and deep balls and tell players that they have to attack short balls (low over the net) and play neutrally when the ball is deep (high over the net).
