Main goal

To become consistent at hitting on the move and moving the opponent from corner to corner.


This is a very common drill, which develops tactical discipline, playing on the move, changing directions, using different rotations, and covering the court.

It is expected that the cross-court player creates pressure by hitting angles with topspin and slice shots. The down-the line player reacts to the pressure by hitting deep slices and topspin shots and waiting for the opportunity to hit a drive forehand or backhand winner.

Net-game is not allowed in this drill.


Practice game
