The player starts on the service line and is fed 3 balls in a row at different heights to the backhand side. The player must execute a backhand volley from each of these feeds.

Coaching points

Being able to hit successful volleys from different points of contact is a crucial skill for any net player. Many coaches feed the same ball while working with players and they make them improve only in one specific situation. This drill is a good opportunity to observe players facing balls at different height, and this is something that should be incorporated into all drills.
