Coaching points

In this drill, the player works on the point of contact for forehand volleys. Catching is an easy action to improve this tennis-related area. Coach should pay attention to player's footwork (stepping in) to guarantee proper habits from the beginning.

Poor contact point is one of the most common mistakes at the net. Players tend to take big backswings and it has an impact on late hitting zone. Striking in front of the body helps with better control and faster improvements in volleys.
