Feeling Comfortable At The Front Of The Court

It is much easier to finish a point while being at the net rather than trying to win whilst being at or a few meters behind the baseline. It simply means that players have to understand that net strokes open up the best opportunity to win points.

Strong net players know exactly how important it is to use the whole body when playing a volley. Trying to control power, spin, direction and depth only with the hand and the racket will never be successful against good opponents. Players should incorporate a forward motion into the shot to ensure the body is used and they are in a good position to capitalise on the next ball.

Moving forward forces players to use a closed stance more often so closed stance shots is a technique that should be practiced to become effective with shots while trying to move forward to the net.
