Tennis: Sharpening up!

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

DESCRIPTION

Players 1 and 2 are at the net, player 3 is working from the baseline.

The point is live as soon as the first ball is fed in from the volleyers with tramlines being out for both ends.

However, the volleying players cannot hit a clean winner to win the point, they must force player 3 into making an error to score.

Player 3 can do whatever they wish with the ball to win the point, they also win the point if they can make the ball bounce before the volleyers can get to it.

COACHING POINTS

Players 1 and 2 are looking to be as aggressive as they can with their volleys, looking for depth and punch on the ball to force the error.

Player 3 must have a high footwork intensity around the balls that are coming straight back to them as they will have little time to operate with.

Notes:

Play first to 7 points before switching around (each player rotates one position clock-wise).
