Hot Pepper Doubles

These bad boys will put a hurt on you
I love a good volley drill. This is a good warm-up as well. Players should have quick hands and be able to volley, so advanced beginners and up.

Four players on court at service line. Someone feeds a ball and point is played out. Players may not back up - point must be played out at or in front of service line. Points awarded as usual. Set a certain number of points to be achieved, then rotate positions or players.

Play should be fast-paced. Insist on good footwork and recovery.
