Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Players rally up and down the middle of the court, attempting to get the longest rally they can hitting beyond the service box.

Racquets are placed in the net to force the players to hit with height, which will help them to get the depth they are looking for.

Pairs of players can compete against each other's courts to see which pair gets the longest rally within a certain amount of time.

Coaching points

If the ball lands long, wide, short or in the net the rally must start again.

Players can sometimes start to push the ball too much in this drill. While they are looking for depth and consistency, they must still hit through the ball in order to achieve the depth.
