Volley Progression with Partner

Position players 4 feet apart in pairs on either side of the net. Players take turns tossing underhand and hitting a forehand volley through the following sequence:

• The player should hold the racquet at its throat and bump the ball back to the tosser. Move the hand and racquet together so the stroke is not “wristy.” The hitters hold the racquet as if they were signaling “Stop” and gently volley the ball back to the tossers. Switch tossers and hitters after five trials.

• The volleyer should move his hand halfway down the handle and volley the ball back to the feeder so the tosser catches the ball in the air. Switch after five volleys.

• Have the volleyer hold the racquet at the handle and gently volley the ball back to the tosser. Switch after five hits.

• Have volleyers turn so they are facing in the opposite direction and repeat the sequence with a backhand volley. Change tossers and hitters after five volleys.
