Player hits volley back to the coach while maintaining their balance.

Coaching points

In this drill, the player is working all the time on his/her balance, while at the same time he/she has to still execute the volley successfully.


As the player skill on the forehand volley increases, change how you feed the ball to him/her.

This can be higher or lower to the forehand or to the player's backhand.
