Next Level 400 Series

Next Level 400 Series Lesson #12

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!

Drop or Drive

  • Balls bouncing shallow in the service box and bouncing high are driveable

    • Drive at the player straight on from you or at open court

  • Balls bouncing deep in the service box or bouncing low are balls that you should drop

    • Drop cross court with staggered transition if possible

  • Shallow and High = Make them Cry!

  • Deep or Low = Go Slow!


Drop or Drive Skinny Singles

  • Place cones 2/3rd the way back on service box –  to determine shallow or deep

  • Player 1 serves and they play out the point on the skinny

  • Server focusing on making drop or drive choice based on depth and ball height

  • Non scored – players take turns serving – 3 serves then switch server


Mid Court Catch and Release

  • Player 1 at NVZ and Player 2 at transition zone

  • Player 1 feeds balls to Player 2 at transition zone

  • Player 2 must “catch” or stop the ball with their paddle then gently hit back to their opponent aiming for NVZ

  • Balls can be hit off the bounce or out of the air- variety of feed is good!

  • Make it harder with more pressure from the feeder
