By Greg Moran
When club players see a high volley headed their way, they almost always think, smash it. For sure, high volleys are ideal targets for winners and point-ending forcing shots. But not every high volley is a sitter. This video will teach you how to approach high volleys and make winning choices depending on the volley’s difficulty.
CLICK HERE for a video demonstration.
Key Points:
  • Your approach to a high volley depends on your court positioning and the height of the ball.
  • Know when to volley deep and crosscourt or at the opposing net player in doubles.
  • You don’t have to be aggressive to hit a good high volley that will give you a great chance to win the point on the next shot.
