Nail, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Coach feeds shorter ball to the ad side.
  • Player runs around and hits forehand approach shot inside in.
  • Coach hits the ball back cross-court.
  • Player finishes with deep forehand volley down the line.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, player learns how to come to the net after inside-in forehand and finish the point with forehand volley. Coach should inform player that effectiveness at the net depends on the court position that player is able to reach. That is why fast movement after the approach shot is the number one goal which players should keep in mind. Additionally, players have to be conscious that they work on 2 different rhythms at the same time: fast pace with attacking forehand and control with forehand volley. Coach, by being included in this drill, can vary the form of their own ball hit to make the exercise more or less demanding.
