The Chipper and Dipper Drill
Level: 2.5 - 5.0
Participation: 2-4 players
Topic: The "Dipper" is the third return of serve in The Previdi System, after SAL and the Offensive Lob. We can use The Dipper to complement The Chipper (or slice) return in both directions on the court.
EFFECT ON GAME: The Dipper adds another element to your game. If your opponent has a weak serve, an aggressive net player or you just want to change it up, you can use the Dipper crosscourt to dip it low as it crosses the net. You can also go down the line or inside-in depending on what side you're returning on. You can already hit the Chipper to "Jail" as well as the offensive lob over the net players head. Your opponents won't know what hit them.
