The Tennis4You Workshop- "2 Players both at net"
By:  Scott Baker @ Tennis4you

This is a simple drill to help develop your volleys. You get to hit more volleys in a shorter period of time, and it is great for beginners as well because the ball is moving at a slower pace rather than having one person drill groundstrokes at you while you are at the net..

Both players stand on their service line. Just try to keep the ball in play and hit as many volleys back and forth as you can. This is also good practice for the 1/2 volley, you won't be able to keep all of the volleys in the air so try to work on the 1/2 volley when you can't hit the ball before it bounces. I feel the best way to do this is to see how many balls you can keep in play. Start by setting a goal like 20 volleys in a row (10 a piece). From there increase in number. Start out hitting soft volleys and increase in pace as your progress.

Good Luck on the Court!!!
