Tennis: Away from the Opponent

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

A player stands at the net. The coach feeds the ball to the forehand side and moves randomly. The player executes forehand volley into the open area (away from the coach).

 

COACHING POINTS

It is important to place the ball into the spot that we want but it is even more important to put the ball away from the opponent. Players have to be aware of the opponent's position to avoid unnecessary mistakes and achieve better results at the net.

In this drill, the player works on placement and opponent's awareness. The coach can challenge players by feeding faster balls or being closer to the net (shorter reaction for the player).
