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

DESCRIPTION

Cones are set close to the net on the ad side. The player stands close to the net on the deuce side, and the coach feeds the balls to the player's backhand. The player hits backhand drop volley into the cones and moves across the net.

COACHING POINTS

Doubles game requires a lot of feeling in different tactical situations because of more players and less space on the tennis court. That is why players should learn how to control the ball and take the pace off to win the point.

In this drill the player works on backhand drop volley while moving across the net. Different positions force the player to change racquet head's angle every time so player learns how to adjust the shot. With more players on the court coach can put all of them across the net and move them one position to the left after the set of balls.
