Tennis: Make it Deep

Sportplan has been very helpful in guiding me through my first year...
Bill, Newly qualified coach

DESCRIPTION

  • Deep zone is set. 
  • Player stands at the net. 
  • Coach feeds balls to the ad side. 
  • Player hits deep backhand volleys in different directions.

COACHING POINTS

In this drill player works on deep backhand volley. Cones give constant feedback to the player according to his quality so player can correct himself after too short or too deep balls. Coach should teach players to focus on control by using proper footwork and more backspin instead of power which doesn’t guarantee consistency. If this exercise is too easy coach can vary height and power of own shots to make it more challenging for the player.
