Tennis: Touch move rally (forehand)

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

DESCRIPTION

Players face each other at the net, and rally together with control volleys while moving across the net.

COACHING POINTS

Playing successfully soft volleys with control is a good indicator of well-learned net-game skills. Many players lack of this ability because they rarely work with cooperative drills so they are not able to repeat the same shots again and again. Coach's job is to put players under different drills to make development complete.

This drill is a good test of controlling abilities. Players, who mostly try to finish the point with one volley, can struggle with this exercise because they prefer to use power. The coach should explain to players that soft hands will help them play better drop volleys that are necessary on higher levels of performance.
