The Coach’s Corner series from Realife Tennis offers tips, insight and perspectives from tour level coaching professionals. In this latest Coach’s Corner segment, tour coach GD Jones demonstrates two useful volley drills for developing better net play. As we enter the grass court season, you will be hearing a lot about the serve and volley and how effective it can be on a quick surface. But in truth, good volleys are critical for singles and doubles on any surface. These two drills will have you on your way to better overall volley technique, and with just a little practice you will be volleying better in no time.
With the help of pupil Matt, GD explains the role of the grip in hitting a good volley and provides techniques to improve and strengthen your volley grip. They also discuss the movement of the body when executing a volley shot. The video includes valuable explanations as well as important demonstrations on how to improve overall volley technique.
For a much more in-depth look at how to improve your volleys, take a look at our Training Camp Volley Course. There you will learn even more about how to hit effective volleys and practice professional-grade volley drills.
