VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: Hi, I'm Brian Teacher, welcome to Full Court Tennis and today on the 6th step of the Forehand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to hit a Forehand Volley when the ball is hit straight at you. There is no take back because this is happening very quick. Just lay the wrist back fairly firm from the ready position light on your feet and quickly pick the right foot up and slide it to the left side and before the right foot touches firmly on the ground the left foot is lifted of the ground and slides left and forward. this happens quickly not to miss a beat and still make an accurate and strong forehand volley while moving forward into your left foot. This is the typical way to effectively hit a forehand volley that comes straight at you hard. You have to read it quickly off your opponents racquet. Let's keep watching it right here from the ready position the fight root slides to the left in and the wrist laid back and simultaneously left foot steps to the left and forward as you initiate the hit by pressing into the right foot front of your body right there and unloading the hit it front of your left foot, so you can get your weight forward through the shot and land into the left foot in balance quickly to react to the next shot. That's all you can do when you have no time to react you've got to be able to at least do this to get through the ball and keep it forward, pressing through. Keep working on it right here, set the wrist, slide the foot and push through the hip every time.Just keep working on this over and over and you're going to get it.It's not difficult but it is a learned little practice technique to keep doing it over and over so you can control the shot as well as possible.Try practicing at least 15 minutes a day until you master each step. Post your progress to the full court feed or hire a coach in app for a virtual lesson.Stay focused, enjoy the process and always listen to your body.
