Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

The coach is feeding from the basket and players hit 2 balls each, a 1st volley and a 2nd volley.

Players can start between the baseline and the service-line running forwards and split-stepping as the coach makes contact with the ball.

After hitting the first volley down the line, they must move forwards closing the net down and edging to cover the line before they hit the 2nd volley cross-court.

The 1st volley must be played deep and the 2nd volley as a shorter angled shot.

Coaching points

Even though the players know where the ball is going they should be on balance and ready to react to whatever ball is fed.

The split step as the coach feeds will help this.
