Backhand Volley

Mar 22nd, 2012
  • Ready position with continental grip, hips squared to net and wrists cocked back
  • Left hand is placed on the throat of the racquet for support
  • Step across the body with right foot towards the ball
  • Do not swing the racquet or tilt it away from the net
  • Right arm extends towards the ball and left hand acts as a counterbalance and releases the throat as if you are pulling your two hands away from each other
  • Weight shifts on to right foot
  • Keep the racquet head up and above the net
  • If ball drops below the net, do not drop racquet head, bend knees
  • Finish the volley out in front and go back to ready position
