Necessary skills for successful doubles

Get your players working effectively as a duo and improving on their doubles game with this session! By using drills specific to the doubles game, you'll be getting them used to playing with a team mate and use of the full court, so they are ready to take on the opposition.

What's in the session?

With a slightly bigger court than the singles game, get your players used to having to adjust their shots, so their groundstrokes don't fly out of range or fall short. Work on strokes such as the cross-court forehand, as well as improving their volleying at the net, making sure their reactions are perfect.

It's important that your players improve their game at the net, as aspects such as poaching are vital when playing doubles, as well as pulling off a lob when it's your opponents at the net.
