Improve your tennis game: Smash Attack
Ready to work on being more aggressive and charging the net? Smash Attack is a game that can be played with four players or two where you quickly move from baseline, to volley, to overheads.
Here's how to play.
Start with both partners (doubles) or individuals (singles) on their baseline. One side drop-hits the ball into play and you play the point out while staying at the baseline. The team who wins the point then moves up to the net to see if they can win the volley point. If they do, they then have a chance to hit an overhead smash to win the team-point. If a side fails to win the volley or overhead point, they must move back to try to work their way back up to the net.
The first side to five team-points wins the game!
