Tennis Drill Demonstration
Player starts from the cone and the coach feeds the ball behind the player's head. The player moves back, jumps, and hits defensive overhead.
In this drill, the player works on footwork technique. Movement back while dealing with tough balls is a specific action that players have to understand and execute. The coach has to explain to players to quickly move with a crossover step and jump from the back leg to guarantee the best possible positioning to this difficult shot. If players struggle with these physical moves, the coach should encourage players to work on physical abilities off the court.
