The Tennis4You Workshop- "2 back vs 2 back"
By: Scott Baker @ Tennis4you

This is a good drill to help you transition from the baseline to the net in doubles. In doubles the goal is to get both players to the net which is the strongest doubles strategy..

Start with 2 players on each side of the court with all of the players at their baseline. One player starts the point by hitting a groundstroke to their opponents. In this drill you must stay on the baseline until your opponents hit a groundstroke that lands inside your service line. As soon as the ball bounces inside the service line, the team whose side it bounced on must approach the net.

Try playing this drill as a game. You can play a 12 point tie-breaker format or first one to 10 points wins. Whatever keeps the game interesting to you!

Good Luck on the Court!
