BACKHAND CROSS-COURTS




Drill Description: Each player begins in the center of the court on the baseline. The ball is fed the other player’s backhand. The other player then hits the ball cross-court to the opposing player’s backhand and then they rally back and forth. If the players are right-handed, they stand in the add court. If the players are left-handed, they stand in the deuce court. The better the players become at rallying cross-court, the harder they can hit. The players can opt to play a game in which the first player to reach eleven wins. The game is played only cross-court and the doubles alleys do not count. This drill stresses developing the backhand, so use only that stroke.
