Tennis: Run Forrest, run!

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

DESCRIPTION

The coach feeds a drop-shot from the basket. Players 1 and 2 are at the same end as the coach and are positioned at the net.

Player 3 must run forwards to try to get to the drop-shot and play it up to either of the players at the net.

The players at the net must lob-volley the ball back over player 3's head. Player must then 3 run back to chase the ball hitting it again to either of the players at the net, who then drop volleys this ball.

The point continues in this way until an unforced error is made or player 3 cannot run anymore!

COACHING POINTS

This is a fun game but also teaches the working player how to move forwards and backwards and make balls under pressure.

It also develops the hand skills of the net players and is reasonably realistic as they would have moved to the net after playing a drop-shot in a match situation.
