Touch the Fence

Touch the Fence is a tennis drill that has two players compete against each other first to 11 points.

A point should begin through a drop-and-hit down the middle with the return having to be hit back down the middle. After each point the loser of the point must run and touch the fence as the coach counts to 4 seconds, after which the winner of the point can begin the next point through a drop-and-hit.

This is a fast-paced drill that gives even greater incentive of winning the point.

An alternative to this can be to allow the loser of the point to be able to touch the net, and by doing so encourage the movement towards the net for each point (because if they make a mistake being aggressive at the net they won’t have to run as far).
