Tennis: Regular Rally with a Drive

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

The player stands on the baseline, whilst the coach stands at the net. Both rally together; the player uses only backhand cross court, whilst the coach hits the ball back with a volley.The coach hits randomly a slower and higher ball to allow the player to hit backhand drive in the air.

The next step of every skill is to check how the player can react to a situation where given skill can be used. Setting an environment, where the player is forced to react and use drive in the air, is an opportunity to develop tactical awareness.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill, the player works on incorporating backhand drive in the air into a regular rally. By hitting random slow and high balls, coach can decide where to check player's reaction and technical proficiency.
