This player-fed tennis drill teaches doubles transition skills in a realistic volley scenario.

Player 1 feeds the ball to player 7 and must rush the net. Player 7 can hit the ball anywhere he wants.

The point is played out and then 1 goes to the 2 spot and 2 goes around the net to the end of the line on the opposite baseline.

The other side rotates in the same manner.

The purpose of this tennis drill is to give players a lot of repetition of playing the first ball after the serve (the shot players fear the most and keeps many of them from coming to the net.)

Variation 1: Play the same game to the backhand side.

Variation 2: Allow the feeders to serve and play the point even if the serve is a little out. This will keep the drill moving.
