Varying The Depth At The Net

Effective net play requires technical quality and good decision making. At intermediate and advanced levels players can come to the net, even straight from the baseline, to get an advantage, so learning how to read an opponent's position and when to sprint to the net are skills that have to be practiced to make this strategy effective and automatic.

What’s in the session?

At the net, players need to feel comfortable with strokes that are played out of the air. This means that players have to work on various volleys and overheads that include changing trajectories, point of contact and power. One way to guarantee this variation is to make exercises that consist of 2 players playing to each other and adjusting every time to the incoming ball.
