Tennis: 3 different spots for approach + volley

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

DESCRIPTION

The coach feeds 2 balls to the deuce side. The player hits forehand approach and forehand volley to the ad side, then repeats the same pattern from the center of the court and from the ad side.

COACHING POINTS

Most of the drills focused on the net game should be connected with the approach shot because this shot always precedes the net action. Learning how to hit the approach shot and quickly run to the net to take the best possible position are factors that decide about the final result of the volley.

In this drill, the player works on approach shot and forehand volley. The coach should emphasize quick run after the shot and split step before the volley is hit (better balance and control over the shot). For more advanced players, the coach can give more demanding balls to check their ability to quickly respond at the net.
