Volleys that drop below the height of the net can be extremely tough to handle. In today’s lesson, Brady demonstrates the proper technique on the low forehand volley.

    Most helpful when approaching, not to rush and stay low.

      Yep get that good split-step in that is lower than typical, especially compared to a split-step from the baseline.

    Good comments on getting down for the volley and hitting lower above the net. Thanks again.

    Excellent set of guidelines, Brady.

    In an earlier video on low volleys you suggested aiming more on the inside of the ball. Does that still hold given your advice about looser grip pressure and a lower net clearance?

      Yes that would be more on the advanced side of things, but you can exaggerate working your racket path to the inside to get a little spin as well, assuming you’re hitting down the line. Everything else still applies.

    Very good Brady. Never tried the racquet drop. I am always scraping my racquet on surface.

      Thanks Tim! A little racket drop and some scraping on the court is OK on low volleys.
