Tennis: 3 variations on the forehand side

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

DESCRIPTION

Cones are set in the deuce corner. The coach feeds 3 balls to the forehand side. The player executes forehand after the bounce, forehand drive in the air, and forehand volley in cross-court direction.

COACHING POINTS

Moving smoothly from neutral to offensive position is an important skill that will let players win many points. Playing against more advanced opponents requires to be more offensive so players have to acquire skills to execute this strategy. Possessing more abilities to win points is the only way to be successful against rivals who have different styles of play.

In this drill, the player works on 3 different offensive forehand strokes. Hitting offensive shots after the bounce, in the air or using regular volley technique challenge players to adapt and make some adjustments in footwork and racquet's trajectory. The coach should make sure that players focus on control before they increase the speed of the balls to get the feeling of all strokes and achieve required level of consistency. This drill can be used as a competition by counting specific number of points for different strokes in the zone.
