The Tennis4You Workshop- "Volleying against the backboard "
By:  Scott Baker - Tennis4you

This drill is great for quick reflexes for volleys and it only takes one person.

Stand back from the backboard/wall about 6 feet. Hit the ball against the wall and try to keep the ball from bouncing by hitting volleys against the wall. This is good practice, it strengthens the forearm because a large number of volleys can be hit is a relatively short period of time.

If you are feeling energetic try standing back from the wall about 35 feet, serve the ball against the wall and then run in like you would serve and volley and play it out from there. However, beware, the wall never misses. : )

Good Luck on the Court!!!
