Hi, I'm Brian Teacher, and welcome to Full Court Tennis. Today on the 10th step of the Forehand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to hit a low forehand volley. It's good that you've mastered how to stay on the ball and press through the shot because this is even a tougher shot and it's low. So let's get into it right now. And here we go.The first thing is you have to do is set that wrist back early with the racquet face slightly open and bend and lower the body down as you see in the video. Then simultaneously while you are doing this you have to move out to the ball. Full Court Tennis is just going to show you how to hit it off the right leg right there. Watch the wrist is laid back, the racquet face is going to be a little bit open and watch the right hand where he's holding the racquet, the racquet head doesn't really go past his right hip right there. So it pretty much stays in front and you push through the right foot and the left foot across and forward and you see the wrist is laid back.And you stay and press through the hit . The eyes need to really measure and see the contact point and stay down until you are sure you are through the shot and have measured the shot over the net. The racquet face is open because it's a low volley under the net and so you need to get some elevation. Watch how the left arm comes across, Nick sets his wrist, as he steps out and onto his right foot Nick does a little torso rotation right there just to get the racket back, and presses through the hit right there. So let's just keep working on this, staying on the ball and pressing and moving through the contact point. Here we go step out and push through the right foot onto the left foot.Transfer the energy and come through the ball of the right to the ball of the left foot there. Make sure the racquet face is open to get the elevation and press through it. Transfer the energy. Try practicing 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.
