Tennis Drill Demonstration

Description

Place a cone in the middle of the court, half way between the base line and sevice line.

Coach rallies with the players through the center of the court.

The player should be aiming to volley the ball back so it lands as close to the cone as possible. This is to encourage the deep court volley.

Coaching points

This exercise goes through the center to eliminate wide mistakes so players will hit successful shots more often.

While working with live ball, coach should make sure that new skills are practiced in the situation that brings a lot of positives.

If players can't rally together, coach can take spot on the baseline to deliver consistent balls and players can rotate after few shots.
