TWO ON ONE WITH ONE PERSON AT THE NET




Drill Description: Two players stand on the baseline, one on the deuce side, the other on the add side. The other player stands in the center of the court on the service line. The two players on the baseline feed a ball to start the rally, and the person at the net hits the ball to the corners. To get the most out of the drill, do not try to hit too hard. Keep the ball in play as long as possible. The goal is to move the net man around a lot so that he gets a good work out as well as practice hitting to the corners. After five to ten minutes rotate clockwise. After five to ten more minutes, rotate clockwise again so that everyone has a chance to be at the net.

Stress footwork and fundamentals for the player at the net. He will be executing volleys from many different angles and should alternate which side he hits to. However, do not follow a strict, left, right, left, right, pattern. Tennis is unpredictable and the net player must react to the ball.
