In this video you will learn a few drills to improve the game at the net.
Drill 1, oscillation volley
Both players stand at the net and volley to each other's forehand or backhand 30 times
Player 1 feeds a ball to player 2 who absorbs the ball, and volleys it back after one bounce of the racket
Player 1 does the same and sends the ball back to you
They could volley to the forehand or the backhand
Next both players absorb the ball on the backhand and hit a forehand volley, and vice versa
Player 1 feeds forehands and backhands to player 2 at the net who volleys it back inside the service box
They could switch roles after 20 volleys
Once they're comfortable they could add a little more power into the shots
The person at the net should absorb the power with the hand but nevertheless make sure that the weight is transferred forward
Place two cones, one inside the service box and the second close to the baseline
Player 1 feeds balls at the net to player 2 who alternates with short and deep volleys
The objective of this drill is to develop control and the ability to place the volleys
