Tennis Tips - Volleys & Overheads

Improving the Volley Using a Tennis Ball Can
To help a player become more accurate with the volley and avoid swinging and mishits of the ball, have the player try to catch a ball in a tennis ball can. With a few practice attempts, surprisingly, the player will succeed despite the fact that there is less than a millimeter clearance between the ball and can.

Hold a tennis ball can in the left hand and place it behind the racket strings, dead center. Now the player is forced to hit the ball out in front with little backswing. After a few hits, remove the can and the volley will be much improved.
