Push through the ball with tips of fingers with knees bent.

To start the exercise, one player volleys the ball to their partner who digs the ball up to themselves then volleys the ball back.
The other player then repeats this pattern.
3 Grass roots
In pairs 3-4 metres apart roll the ball to your partner who lets the ball go between their legs and sits on top of the ball
Two players stand either side of the net and pass the ball overhead first time to their partner on the other side of the net.
Start with the ball with one of the middle players who volleys the ball to the middle player they volley it back to the outside player who then volleys over the two middle players to the outside player on the opposite side as the other players are working the players that have just worked change places and repeat. This exercise is for players to be able to control the ball over differing distances. Again this can either be measured by time or number of good volleys.
