The Tennis4You Workshop- "Attacking the Serve"

Two players at net on one side, the instructor's. They will focus on short direct volleys and not swinging at the ball. The other two set up in normal doubles position, one up, one set to return.

Instructor feeds a soft second serve. The returner is instructed to attack the ball at its bounce point, catching it well below the waist (flat hitters will need to catch it higher, since they tend to swing down) and to drive it forward. Her partner moves forward with her. The two sides play the point out. Periodically, rotate all four players, so everyone has a chance to play each position.
