Tuesday Tennis Tips: Poaching practice
This is a fun drill to work on poaching with only three people. Two players stand at the T and volley back and forth. The third player is at the net and tries to poach every other volley of the player on the other side of the net. I find that it really gets net players into a rhythm of moving with conviction and volleying with control. Give it a try and let me know how it goes!
