In this video you'll learn a basic drill with a cone to work on your footwork and hand-eye coordination for your volleys.
Place two markers at 45 degrees, a couple of metres from the net
The coach will feed you balls to the forehand
In this case the player is left-handed
The objective is to move forward and catch the ball in the cone
The legs should be wide apart in the starting position
Bend your knees as you stretch your hands out in front
The cone should above your waist
Take the ball out and throw it back to the trainer
Next, you will get a few balls on the backhand side
Judge and catch the ball in the cone
If you have a smaller cone, you could make the drill harder
Your judgement will have to be perfect in order to catch the ball
You will now get balls to the left or to the right, high and low
This will help you develop reflexes
Practice this drill with your friend or your coach
The ball is in your court, enjoy your game
