Tennis: Hit and move forward

Thank you very much for the marvellous site.
Nick, Tennis coach

DESCRIPTION

Starting on the baseline, the player stands facing the coach. The coach then feeds the player balls.

The player returns the balls by hitting a half-volley.

After each return shot the player moves forward, and the coach steps back so the gap between them both stay the same.

COACHING POINTS

Every shot in tennis has to be connected to movement.

It is important to teach correct technique (half-volley) based on real situations which can occur during in match.

Emphasise the importance of the half-volley as a tactical shot.
