Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Players stay on the service lines and rally together in a cross-court direction. Players have to hit all the balls in the air.

Coaching points

Rally from the service line is a good drill to work not only on volleys but also to improve important tennis skills like reaction and consistency. Short distance from each other means that players can't lose focus even for a second so coach should emphasize proper mental approach to achieve desired results.

In this exercise, players work on consistency, control and placement. The coach should tell players to bend knees really low to react faster and be able to respond to low shots. Many juniors make mistake with hitting the volley and straightening legs what results in late next volleys because of the lost rhythm.
