Tennis: Balancing on the outside leg

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

DESCRIPTION

Player stands on his/her right leg on the service line. Coach feeds balls to the player's forehand side. Player hops to the ball on one leg and hits a forehand volley back to the coach.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player works on his/her forehand volley while balancing on one leg. Many difficult and strong passing shots won't give a player enough time to step forward so players have to know how to control the body while putting the weight on the outside leg. For less advanced players, coach can modify the drill to catch the ball first (without a racquet) and then progress to hitting the ball with the racquet.
