Tennis: Mini Half Volley Rally

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Player stands inside the service box.
  • Coach stands on the service line.
  • Player rallies with coach down the line.
  • Coach hits all the balls using regular strokes. Player hits using only the backhand half-volleys.

COACHING POINTS

  • This situation puts the player into a match environment because every ball is different so constant physical adjustment is needed to be able to achieve a proper position for the shot.
  • Coach should pay attention to the player’s footwork to make sure that even while hitting to each other from a short distance, the player is active and reacts quickly to every ball.
  • This is also a good test of the player’s strength preparation If after a few shots the players lose their footwork’ quality or losen up their wrist in hitting arm, these are the signals of the need to do additional work off the court.
