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.
- 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.
