These drills are designed to improve ball control of the player.
6 Forehand live: 2 players, one controlling the other attempting to use only forehand groundstroke. The pattern is 2 x cross court, 2 x line forehand, 2 x inside out forehand. Keep ball alive as long as possible.
Knock down the wall: Coach takes position on the service line and feeds ball to the ground stroke player, who goes at almost full power to the volley and tries to keep control at high speed and make the volleyer miss.
High net for depth: The net is raised so the highest point is in the centre. The coach feeds balls wide, middle and wide, and the player has to use his forehand over he high net and achieve greater depth control.
Junior Spin Serve: 10 cones are placed between the service line and the baseline, 5 on each side. 1 ball is placed on each cone, and 3 spares are located near the service 'T'. Using only spin serves, the junior has to progressively move backwards and hit 10 successful serves without using up all the balls.
Cone Drill: cones are placed 1 metre in from the baseline 'T'. Players must rally for depth and accuracy and try to hit the cone. To make it competitive play up to 3 direct hits.
