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.
In a match, every ground stroke is played off a different variety of footwork movements. A fine technique is built upon the ability to take an effective position on court to play the stroke. Therefore develop your players reaction times and their footwork with a focus on their technique and tactical positioning.
Volleying is all about positioning and touch. Get your player in the in the right position to make the shot and finish the point and when perfected, it will be a lethal weapon in a players game.
