Close in on Your Volleys

Being lazy and not closing in while hitting your volleys can cause you to hit more defensive volleys or even hit the ball into the net. When you do not close in on your volleys you are not nearly as effective as you could be. If you wait for the ball to come to you the ball will be slower, lower and cause you to hit more of a defensive volley. When you are at the net you want to be as offensive as much as each shot will allow you to be. You must move to the ball and not wait for the ball to come to you. .

Moving in on slow hit shots like slice shots or high floaters will allow you to hit better angles, give you a better percentage of getting the ball in and give you more options of what you can do with the ball. Get as close to the net as you can to hit these volleys, your point may depend on it!

Good Luck on the Court!
