Coaching points

Volley's possibilities are not limited only to hitting to the forehand or backhand side. The best players in the world are able to hit volleys deep, short or with angle. Knowing how to control the racquet's angle is an ability that can make a difference in player's results on the court.

This simple rally exercise is a good tool to learn how to control racquet's angle. Close distance to the net doesn't force the player to use any power so he/she can completely focus on control and placement. Even this exercise is pretty simple, the coach has to demand hard work and constant movement by both players.
