SERVE AND VOLLEY CROSS-COURT




Drill Description: One player is serving and the other player is returning. The point is played out cross-court. One player serves the ball from the deuce side to the opposite deuce side and follows it into the net. The other player returns the ball and can either come to net also, or stay back. The players then proceed to play the point out cross-court, as if playing on half-courts. Doubles allies do count. You can play a game to eleven if the players want to have a little competition. Once one player reaches eleven, repeat the same thing on the add side. Once this is complete, switch and have the person whom just served now return and the person who just returned now serve.

This drill works on both serving accuracy and return accuracy. By limiting the area to play with, the players must concentrate. Using competition also helps to keep the players motivated and working hard.
