🎾Join in on our Backhand Volley Challenge! Challenge yourself and grow your skills. Part 11 of 11.

Hi, I'm Brian Teacher, and welcome to Full Court Tennis. Today is the 11th step of the Backhand Volley Challenge, and I'm going to show you how to be aggressive on a low backhand volley. Look at as he steps out to the ball, look at it as he gets through it with those legs right there. Let's look at this again from the ready position right here. Set the wrist, lower down the body, racquet face is slightly open and  step out and move through it quickly. This is the same as Backhand Volley Challenge 10 except that you are using your legs very aggressively to press and move through the hit. Keep your eyes on the contact point to make sure you clear the net. You got to jump on the ball and be aggressive with your legs. You have to take it as early as possible  and don’t let it drop any further and move right through it. Just like series #10 but you're just being aggressive with your legs right now. Racquet face is open because you're under the net. You have to get lift and you have to stretch through the ball right there with that wrist laid back to keep the pressure and penetration through the shot. Let's keep working on it and keep watching it right here as we backpedal. Here we go one more time. Quickly set the wrist, pivot out with that left foot, move quickly with the racquet face open and wrist laid back pressing and extending through the hit for maximum penetration. 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.
