Behind the Back

This player is a lefty, so she is starting with the racquet
in her non-dominant (right) hand
Third in Ken DeHart's series of hand quickness drills is Behind the Back. Player is at net preparing to hit volleys off balls fed from coach. Racquet should be in non-dominant hand and held behind back. Player must bring racquet around front, switch to dominant hand and get into volley position for each feed.

Now you have all three hand quickness improvement drills: Fast Gun, Superman, and Behind the Back. Bundle them together and have your players perform them in series to get those hands Superquick at the net!
