WATCH: Doubles Tennis Strategy… When You’re Caught “In The Cross Hairs”

What would you do if you were at the service line playing doubles, and your partner hits a floater to your opponent at net?

Duck and cover?

Scream like a banshee and hope he misses?

In this video, you’ll find the three secrets that you need to get out of this situation, and potentially come out on top!

The first tip is to get low! This is going to keep you dynamically balanced and put you in a much better position to hit a good volley.

The next is commit to the backhand. You’re not going to have time to get crossed up, and you’ll find that it’s much easier to cover more of your target area with your backhand than your forehand. So use your backhand volley (continental grip).

Finally, keep your hands in front. Hey, they’re like your shield at this point… better to keep them in front of you where you can still do something offensive with the incoming ball, then keeping your hands close to your body and getting jammed.

After years of working with tennis professionals, I developed my own program and moved myself up to 5.5. I even played in the USTA 7.0 mixed championships! My goal now is to help everyone find the FUN in tennis fundamentals, and to show them that tennis is a solution to lifelong fitness!
