Pick Your Spot

I totally pick these spots
I found this drill at a PE teachers website and modified it for use with youngest beginners. As usual I have some suggested progressions at the end of the post.

Coach is at service line feeding balls to player across net at baseline. Coach feeds 10 balls per player. Player sees how many he/she can hit cross court and in play. Player getting best percentage of 10 wins.

Variation
Repeat going down the line
Repeat from the backhand side.

Progression
Have two players involved, one taking the place of the coach and bounce feeding to baseline player. This way coach can stay on baseline side to assist with stroke analysis.
