Ground Stroke - Volley Combination

Position one player at the net and the partner at the opposite service line:

1. From the service line, one player drop-hits a forehand ground stroke to a partner at the net.

2. The player at the net volleys the ball back to the partner at the service line.

3. The “feeder” traps the ball on the strings with her hand and repeats the ground stroke – volley – trap sequence.

Change positions after five hits each. This activity is much easier if you start with foam balls and move to low compression balls as the players master these skills.

Players should be sideways when trapping the ball.
