In tennis, if they do practice their serve,
which is great. I’m happy that they do. But most people never practice the return. So
every point starts off as somebody serving and the other side returning. So what this
drill is, is one of the best serve return drills there is. So I’m going to serve from
here to Daren. By serving from here, it’s easier on my arm. Second, a lot more serves
quickly. So what we’re going to do, is just like that. And then Daren returns it. Now
he can hit it to me and I can then hit another ball back to him. If we want to add that aspect
to the practice. But this is a great way of upping the quality of your return. If you
watch the best players on the Tour on TV, their serve returns are excellent. So really,
even if you have a great serve, they can return them. And they are able to do that because
they practice a lot. So Daren, I’m going to hit some to Daren’s forehand and his back
hand. So you can see, Daren can get a lot of returns quickly because I’m this close
to the net. And if I really want to up the pace of a ball, it’s not that hard to do.
But this is a way for me to work on my serve and my volleys. And Daren can work on his
serve return. So Daren, let’s have you go to the other side now. So now I can practice
hitting him up wide to him. Down the middle. So this is a really valuable drill. And once
you do it, it’s a lot of fun. You can make a game out of it. You can play. The server
can then try to volley for the winner and then returner can try to pass them. So that’s
a great drill and I hope you take advantage of it and master it.

  1. your foot was in the line while you were serving. that usually costs you a point if you're actually playing a tennis match.
