The Hourglass Drill For Doubles Tennis

Type:  Drill
Level:  2.5 - 5.0
Participation:  2-4 players

 

Topic:  The Hourglass Drill is drill #2 in The Previdi System and builds on Crosscourt Mini Tennis to help the player learn how to use and increase the angle of the opponents ball. This drill is especially helpful when working on the SAL Return. 

EFFECT ON GAME:  Mastering The Hourglass Drill will make it easier to open up the court on an outside (wide) ball. Most players haven't ever used this area of the court and the players we teach are often amazed at how many winning shots they can hit using these angles. A related drill is the touch angle volley drill which will be very helpful when hitting a low midcourt volley.
