Dave Hagler

This month in Part 3 of this series I am adding 4 new, more advanced drills for developing touch. Click Here for Part 1 and Click Here for Part 2.

Emperor's Volley

I learned this drill from USPTA and PTR Master Professional Ken DeHart 30 years ago. Bump the ball up then volley it to your partner who will bump it and then volley it back.

Now catch the ball on your forehand, toss it with the racquet without the bump hit to your partner who catches, tosses and hits back to you.
