Down The Alley
This is a game focused on increasing the consistency and accuracy of a player. Also for the middle alleyway component of the drill, it also focuses on centering the ball. By centering the ball a player is reducing the likelihood of an error, while also reducing the angle at which an opponent can hit the ball back.
- The coach should set up an alley way, by placing cones on either end of the court.
- Two players must hit a pre-defined number of balls down the alley way. A reward or punishment can be applied if they achieve the target. This should be up to the discretion of the coach, where they see appropriate.
- After the drill is completed down the centre alleyway, the players can then hit down the forehand and backhand side alleyways, both down-the-line and crosscourt.
