Hi, I'm Brian Teacher and welcome back to Full Court Tennis. Today, on the 10th step of the Backhand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to hit a low backhand volley. There he does a little pivot from the ready position, turns that left foot out and sets the wrist. Watch that wrist and hand right there as it doesn't go past his left hip as he off weights and picks up his right leg up he pivots or turns his torso across that left leg. However, everything stays in front of his left hip and as he pushes into that left leg, see how he unloads the torso and the shot as the racquet face comes around with the racquet face slightly open to get some lift. The ball is underneath the net so he's got to get some lift. Now watch how the right arm comes around through the contact point with the wrist laid back, pressing through the hit as the right foot extends through the shot. See how he stays low through the hit with his eyes on the contact point to measure the ball over the net. Let's watch it again right here from the ready position right here. Little pivot, and the wrist is prepared, the racquet face is slightly open. He drops down, presses through the hit and extends through with the racquet face open. You have to measure the ball to make sure you get over the net. Here it is. He moves right through the shot for a good hit. Practice at least 15 minutes a day until you master each step. Post your progress to the Full Court feed and or hire a coach in app for a virtual lesson. Stay focused, enjoy the process, and always listen to your body.
