Tennis Drill: Cross-Court Forehand

Tennis Drill: Cross-Court Forehand

Category: Hitting
Submitted by: Brandon K.

Drill Description:
Each player starts in the center of the court on the baseline. The ball is fed to the other person's forehand. The two players rally the ball back and forth cross-court.

If the players are right-handed, they hit from the deuce court. If the players are left handed, they hit from the add court. Remember, this drill is designed to work specifically on the forehand. The better the players become at hitting cross-court, the harder they can hit the ball.

The players can opt to play a game in which the first player to reach eleven wins the game. The game is played cross-court and doubles alleys do not count.
