Tennis: No easy balls for rival's forehand

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands at the net. Cones are set in the deuce service box. The coach feeds balls to the forehand side, and the player hits forehand volley into the open area (avoiding zone with the cones).

 

COACHING POINTS

Modern forehand is a weapon on all levels so players should avoid hitting easy balls to the opponent's forehand while being at the net. Being able to place the ball deep to the corners or short to the backhand side make bigger chances to finish the point as a winner.

In this drill, the player works on placement of the forehand volley. Ability to control racquet's head is a necessity to consciously change direction of the ball.
