VIDEO TRANSCRIPTION: Hi, I'm Brian Teacher. Welcome to Full Court Tennis, today on the 9th step of the Forehand Volley Challenge, I'm going to show you how to hit a forehand stretch volley. How do you hit it? Well, you got to run to the ball as fast as you can because it's a stretch shot.You got to set the wrist back in front of your body and as you move out, you stretch the right leg out and plant through that right foot. We see the racquet and contact point is right off of the right foot with little to now backswing. You see the arm is stretched out with the wrist laid back  as you don’t have time to do anything else. So you hit off the right foot and try to come forward through the hit. Because of your running  momentum of quickly trying to get to the shot, but not being completely in balance like a normal setup, you try to fall forward onto the left foot pressing through the shot to penetrate (or you could hit a drop volley if close enough to the net) and then quickly get ready for the next shot if possible. Everything's in front of the right foot right there and he presses through the hit way out in front of his body. And then he just pushes through the shot racquet  face is slightly open because the shot is slightly  under the net and he pushes through and everything comes forward.That's how you hit it, right there.You got to set the wrist in front of your body right there as you move and make sure it stays kind of in front so you can control it from your right foot. When you plant on that foot, you got to control the swing and just press through the hit and come forward,  through your legs. See how the hit comes in front of his left foot as he moves through it right there. So just keep working on this light on the feet, quickly moving and pressing through and that's a great shot. 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.
