Tennis: Volley into the deep zone

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

DESCRIPTION

The player stands at the net,whilst the coach feeds random balls. The player hits forehand/backhand volley into the deep zone (behind the cones).

COACHING POINTS

Playing deep balls is important from the baseline as also at the net. By keeping the ball around the baseline, the player forces the opponent to move back and play less offensive shots. Top players in the world show clearly how important it is to dictate the point by playing deep shots.

In this drill, the player works on depth with volleys. Deep zone is set by cones so the player has a visual target to aim for. For more advanced players, coach can modify the drill by asking players to hit particular number of deep volleys in a row.
