Return of Serve Mechanic

  • Start well behind the baseline with staggered feet
    • This allows player to move through the ball with weight transfer as they hit
  • Focus on contact point out in front. 
  • Short Backswing- paddle butt to back hip
  • Extending forward and not up. 
  • Footwork:
  • Forehand – open stance (right handed player)
    • Turn hips and load onto right foot
    • Push forward off of right leg while hitting and land on left foot
  • Backhand – closed stance (right handed player)
    • Turn shoulders and hips to load onto right leg
    • Push forward off of right leg as you allow weight transfer to move through the shot

Return Down the Line Drill

  • Set up cones in the back outside corners of the service boxes
  • 1 player serves and 1 player returns to the targets down the line
  • Server alternates serving from even and odd sides
  • Returner practices returning deep down the line

Transition Zone Trash Collector

  • One player at NVZ, one at transition zone
  • NVZ player feeds balls to transition zone player who has to reset all balls
  • Feeds can be hit out of the air or off the bounce- variety is best!
  • Timed rounds to see how many you can hit into NVZ in the round
