Serve & Volley Vs. Return & Volley Drill and Game

Type:  Drill
Level:  2.5 - 5.0
Participation:  4 Players

TOPIC: A great way to practice serve and volley vs. return and volley is with this drill. It can also be played as a game. 

EFFECT ON GAME: By taking the serve out of the equation, we can get the players to work on getting comfortable with the mid court volley in a real match environment with both opponents coming toward the "server." The next drill or game after this one has the players serving four points each with everything else staying the same as depicted here. Once the players have done this hundreds of times they will get better at reading situations and hitting the appropriate type of shot ( neutralizing or attacking) on the mid court volley.
