The Tennis4You Workshop - "Angle Shots "
By:  Ben Johnson

This drill is very effective in helping players hit and return sharp angle shots. Each player stands slightly to the right of the center of the baseline. Either player can start by hitting a forehand to the forehand of the other, but within reach. The receiving player returns to the forehand (within reach) and each player takes a step to the right. The first player hits another forehand and the process continues until both players are close to the net hitting sharp angles until one player hits it out or into the net. The same drill can be done in the same way on the backhand side as well. This drill can use for doubles by including the full court or singles within the singles court. It is usually effective to keep score on a first to 11 basis.
