Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Players stand opposite each other across the net, halfway between the service line and the net.

They must gently tap the ball over the net using a little slice, both off the forehand and the backhand, cutting under the ball gently as if playing a dropshot.

The drill can last for 5 minutes or so until players have begun to 'feel' the ball under maximum control.

Coaching points

Players should look to 'hold' the ball on the strings as long as possible and look to be balanced at all times as they are not under pressure at all here.
