Tennis Tip #25

Nick Hansen, Arrowhead tennis teacher, discusses the first volley and angle volley in this video. On the first volley, make sure to move through it, and the split step for the next volley when your opponent is making contact with the ball. Do not let the ball come to you on the first volley, this is a recipe for popping the ball up. Also, do not let the racquet head fall too far below the wrist. As always, both on the first volley and the angle volley keep your racquet out front. Keep a firm wrist on the angle volley and simply point your strings in the direction that you want to hit the ball. A great drill to do is set up a cone at an angle and hit at it over and over, practicing the angle volley. Enjoy!
