STINGER TENNIS DRILL
This is a 4-ball drill that gives players practice on a lot of different types of shots.
Ball 1: Coach feeds a short sitter to player 1 who must come in and hit a “stinger” to player 4.
Ball 2: Coach feeds a volley to player 2, and the point is played out.
Ball 3: Coach feeds another volley to player 1 (who is now at the net).
Ball 4: Coach feeds an Overhead to either player 1 or 2.
Player 4 must let the first ball bounce and works on counter-punching skills.
After the first ball, player 4 must come to the net for the rest of the points.
On ball four, (lob) the defensive side works on the reverse split step and overall defensive skills.
This is a good tennis drill and allows coaches to take time and review the five levels of aggression with their players.
Variation 1: Change the type of approach from stinger to an approach volley.
Variation 2: Play the same game to the backhand side.
