Pressure session: Forehand volley options, taking the ball in short

A coach-led drill here, with Jesse running a pressure session for Oliver with the Alpha 2 prototype. The machine is set to Single Fire and Jesse uses the remote to trigger each ball launch.

Jesse runs a pressure session for Oliver

With Jesse deciding when to trigger the launch, Oliver has to play two forehand volleys in a row. The emphasis is on attacking the ball short with, for example, a drop or a cross-court nick, but also occasionally to volley.

Then, after the second shot, Oliver ghosts to the backhand and returns to the T.

With Oliver on or approaching the T, Jesse launches the first of the second pair of shots requiring Oliver to move off the T. The second shot is more static for Oliver.
