Coaching points

In this drill player works on difficult backhand volley off balance. Most of the time players don’t have problems with static volleys but they commit more mistakes while being off balance. During practice session coach can challenge player’s volleying skills by placing him in difficult situations. One of these situations is trying to get to down the line passing shot. This skill is really helpful both in singles and doubles so all players should work on this aspect.
