Type: Drill

CROSS-COURT AND DOWN THE LINE




Drill Description: Both players begin in the center of the court on the baseline. One player is going to hit cross-court, and the other player is going to hit down the line. The way to make the drill work is for both players to hit at a medium pace and under control. Once both players try to hit too hard there are no rallies. One player feeds the ball cross-court and the other player returns the ball down the line. The player who fed the ball shuffles his feet and returns the ball cross-court. If the drill is done properly, both players will be
very tired after this drill is complete because both players are doing a lot of running side to side. After a few minutes, the player who was hitting cross-court should go down the line, and the player who was hitting down the line should go cross-court.
