Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Coach feeds balls to the player at different areas of the court.

Player has to hit 4 balls in a row to the specific zones: (1.deep deuce, 2.deep ad, 3.short deuce, 4.short ad).

Coaching points

In this exercise, the court is divided into 4 zones so the coach can see how much control a player has while hitting volleys.

Basic "4 zones", is all about repetition, placement and control.

Progression

To challenge players more, modify the drill to say the zone number while feeding the ball.

That way the player has to react quickly to the number and send the ball to the proper spot.

During real match, this is exactly what a player will have to do - react quickly and hit the ball to the proper zone without hesitating.
