The Dipper Return Technique
Level: 2.5 - 5.0
TOPIC: In The Previdi System, the dipper is the third return we teach our players. We hit it from well inside the court on a second or weaker serve. The ball dips quickly once it goes over the net and can be hit crosscourt ( inside out) or down the line (inside in). It puts the server on the defensive and keeps the net player off balance. It's nearly impossible to poach on and is a great complement to the SAL and Offensive lob returns. Follow the progression in this video to master the Dipper!
EFFECT ON GAME: The Dipper will keep your opponents off balance and add another element to your doubles arsenal. Now you have a nice variety of slower returns as well as faster returns.
