Tennis: Cope With Low Volleys

Thanks for everything! Sportplan has helped me to improve my tennis...
Andrea, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

The player begins by standing on the service line, with the coach tossing short balls to the backhand side. The player must move across and backhand volley the ball down the line.

COACHING POINTS

Technique can help or obstruct proper execution of the low volley. Many players miss these balls because they use the racquet instead of the legs.

Looking at the best players in the world, we can learn that bending the knees really low (sometimes touching the ground) is a necessity to control the ball and place it into desired area.

Less experienced players try to lower the racquet's head to get to the ball which results in many errors.

The coach should teach players to go into a lunge position and maintain their balance by keeping their upper body straight to guarantee faster improvements.
