Tennis Drill Demonstration


One player stands in the deuce corner and rallies with their partner. The player in the deuce corner hits three consecutive forehands to the different zones (cross court, centre and down the line). The player at this end meanwhile, hits all of the balls to the deuce corner.

Coaching points

Consistency is one of the most important skills in tennis so drills based on live-ball repetitions should be implemented into every practice. In this particular exercise, both players benefit in different ways. While on player works on forehand consistency and placement, the other player focuses more on hitting to the same corner while being on the run. With bigger groups on the court, players can rotate after 3 shots to ensure consistent improvements.
