In this video you will learn a few drills to work on your down the line forehand and backhand.
Stand inside the service box
Hit bakchands and forehands down the line with your partner
Switch sides and the stroke by moving to the other service box
Move back to the baseline and start hitting backhands and forehands down the line in one half of the singles court
Try and hit 20 to 30 shots each
You can check out the videos on how to hit a forehand and backhand down the line
The ball should be just a little ahead of the non racket leg and the strings should be pointing towards the target
It's extremely important to flatten out at contact
Next, move to the other half of the singles court
Hit down the line backhands while the opponent hits forehands
Once you are able to have a rally of 50 shots, try restricting your hitting area to the doubles alleys
These drills will help you develop great control over your down the line strokes
Enjoy your game!
