Player 1 is feeding from the service box and player 2 starts on the baseline T in the ready position.
Player 1 rolls tennis balls along the ground, in a random pattern, one after the other and player 2 must move to each ball, stop it with their hand before it goes outside the singles tramlines or baseline.
After stopping the ball player 2 should roll it back to player 1 who can then roll the next ball.
It is easy for player 1 to do this with 2 balls alternating.
Player 1 can feed 10 balls in this way before the players switch roles. The drill can be repeated until each player has completed the drill 5 times.
Player 2 should look to move in a low balanced way, using their legs to bend to the ball rather than bending at their waist.
The aim is to get to each ball as quickly as possible and return it to player 1 in the most efficient way.
Player 1 is feeding and can start halfway between the service line and the net with arms outstretched at shoulder height.
Player 2 is working, starting in the ready position on the baseline, but remaining active on the spot.
Player 1 must drop either of the 2 balls they have outstretched in their hands. As soon as player 2 sees this they must sprint forwards and try to get to the ball after 1 bounce.
They then throw the ball back to player 1 and shuffle their feet moving backwards in a relaxed way to get into the start position for the next feed.
Both players side step along the tramlines throwing the ball (underarm)to each other until they reach the net and then return to the baseline doing the same thing. Catching the ball after one bounce is a good start.
Player side steps until the coach drops a ball.
The player must catch the ball before the second bounce. Players can also start from a stationary position with heels of the ground or hopping on one leg or criss crossing the legs or with player starting with their back to coach and the coach shouting out when throwing the ball.
Players are working in pairs with player 1 feeding from just behind the service box and player 2 starting from the baseline area.
Player 1 can roll, drop, or throw balls in any order or direction to player 2 and player 2 must react accordingly and return the ball to player 1 in the same way it has been fed.
They must reach each and every ball before it goes outside the single tramlines, baseline or in front of the service box. Player 1 can throw the ball straight at player 2 too so they must be ready for anything!
Within each zone, there are approximately four people each with a tennis ball which they have to dribble with whilst staying in their zone. The aim is to try and kick the other persons ball out of the zone whilst you keep yours in the zone. The last person in the zone is the winner.
The coach feeds from the basket at random a selection of four balls for each player. The player must take every ball at the top of the bounce or on the rise. If the coach deems that they have not succeeded in doing this they lose a life! Each player gets 3 lives. The last player standing wins the drill!
Player starts on the service line (facing back fence). Player shuffles from side to side until when the coach says "GO!" and feeds the ball. The player's goal is to then turn, react and hit the volley.
Players start on the side of the court and run across where they return the ball from a feeder and continue running to hit another ball before running to the other side of the court, and recovering while walking round the court to join the back of the queue.
Player serves wide from the ad side. Coach returns with backhand cross-court. Player responds with finishing backhand down the line.
Player starts from the baseline and moves forward after every shot. Coach throws balls at different heights and distances for Player to alternate hitting half volleys and regular volleys back to Coach.
Coach stands on the player's side Coach drops 2 balls from each position (in front of the player, on the side, behind the player). Player runs 2 times to each position and executes regular forehand with aim to keep balanced body
