DESCRIPTION

Players should use good quick footwork to get their feet in the correct position around the ball to play the shots.

The aim is to encourage players to progressively attack on the move.

Coach feeds 3 balls to 3 players. Feed 1 to player A at the net to play a forehand cross court volley. Feed 2 to player B to play a mid court forehand shot down the court. Feed 3 to player C to the corner of the court on the baseline, to play a forehand pass down the line.

The drill should be continuous so as player A joins the queue. Player B moves to feed 1, player C to feed 2, player D to feed 3, so that the drill is continuous.

COACHING POINTS

Pay particular attention to the players footwork around the ball.

Players should be looking to return their mid and deep forehand shots with depth.

Encourage players to hit the ball on the rise or top of the bounce.

This is a fast drill and it is important to encourage the players to advance to their next position quickly.
