Suicide

Don't let the name scare you off. This is a drill from coach David Edwards-Kiely @dkcoach1 on Twitter. It can be played as singles or doubles. Recommended for advanced beginners and up as players will be expected to be able to hit an overhead as well as volley.

Two (for singles) or four (for doubs) players are on court. One player feeds a lob and his/her side of play comes in and prepares to volley the baby smash the lobbed team will be hitting back to them. Play out the point. That's it!

Coach David recommends playing this will all varieties of balls to mix things up and serve as an equalizer for different levels of players. He says his students love it. Thanks Coach David for the share!
