If you have trouble volleying or if you are fearful of volleying here are 2 simple tips to work on. In general, recreational players have a tendency to drop their racquets–especially on low balls. This infraction leaves them very vulnerable and in many situations open to get hit.

And remember… you don’t have to be a pro to train like a pro!
