Tennis: 50 volleys

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

2 players stand in services boxes hitting volleys to each other. Play a continuous rally, counting to try to make 50 shots in a row. If they miss or the ball bounces before a shot then they have to start again at 0.

COACHING POINTS

  • Racquet control
  • Push through racquet
  • Small movements with the racquet head, less is more
  • Any large movements from the legs, outside leg (one towards the direction the player will move) goes first after ready position
  • Try to keep the ball level
  • Recover the position to straight on after every ball
  • Watch the ball to help get into position
  • Use the split step
  • Mix forehands and backhands
  • Trains resilience - if a player misses a shot then they need to focus on the next ball
  • Count out loud- every ball means something

PROGRESSION

Only allow the players to use one side of the court- so that their volleys need to be more precise.
