Coach feeds the ball down the line
The player starts in the middle and runs round to hit an inside-out cross court forehand to the target area
Alternatively a target can be positioned down the line and every third stroke can be hit to that direction
- Use this drill to teach footwork and preparation for inside-out forehands i.e. for right handed players, the first step is the right leg going across and behind the left leg,and then running backwards. Emphasise turning of the shoulders whilst moving and then running with left shoulder facing the net.
- The drill can also be constructed so that the player hits a short angle cross court with a slightly shorter feed.
