Tennis: Line and Cross

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

DESCRIPTION

Players work in groups of 4 volleying one ball between 4.

Players down 1 end start by always hitting cross court, the pair down the other end hitting down the line.

Players continue in this way until "change" is called by the coach, and the pattern resumes with all players trying to keep the rally going as this occurs.

Courts compete between themselves looking for the longest rallies or alternatively, players can compete amongst the groups of 4 by counting errors, so that the player with the least amount of errors at the end of the drill wins!

COACHING POINTS

Players should be looking to work on the technical aspects that have been learnt in the previous 4 drills here, as well as concentrating hard on accuracy.
