Next Level 350 Series

Next Level 350 Series Lesson #4

Thank you for attending Lesson 4 of our 12 week Training Series! Please note that lessons do not have to be taken in numerical order. You are welcome to start anytime during the 2 month rotation.
Here are your notes and homework from class. Keep practicing to solidify all you learned.
Looking forward to seeing you next week!

Return of Serve Mechanic

  • Start well behind the baseline with staggered feet

    • This allows player to move through the ball with weight transfer as they hit

  • Focus on contact point out in front. 

  • Short Backswing- paddle butt to back hip

  • Extending forward and not up. 

  • Footwork:

  • Forehand – open stance (right handed player)

    • Turn hips and load onto right foot

    • Push forward off of right leg while hitting and land on left foot

  • Backhand – closed stance (right handed player)

    • Turn shoulders and hips to load onto right leg

    • Push forward off of right leg as you allow weight transfer to move through the shot


Return Down the Line Drill

  • Set up cones in the back outside corners of the service boxes

  • 1 player serves and 1 player returns to the targets down the line

  • Server alternates serving from even and odd sides

  • Returner practices returning deep down the line


Transition Zone Trash Collector

  • One player at NVZ, one at transition zone

  • NVZ player feeds balls to transition zone player who has to reset all balls

  • Feeds can be hit out of the air or off the bounce- variety is best!

  • Timed rounds to see how many you can hit into NVZ in the round
