Tennis: Net game reaction

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

DESCRIPTION

Player stands at the service line. Coach feeds the ball to the player's forehand side. The player returns the ball to the coach using a forehand volley shot. Coach hits the ball short to the backhand side. Player runs and responds with backhand volley drop shot.

COACHING POINTS

In this exercise the player works on a few factors. Speed and reaction are the primary physical skills this drill develops while control and placement are possible tactical skills to work on. Players have to learn how to sprint and decelerate to get themselves in the correct position to still control the shot with a well-placed drop shot. For less advanced players, the coach feed the p[layer higher and slower balls to let them have a higher success rate to build skill and confidence.
