Superman

Number 2 volley improvement suggestion from Ken DeHart is the Superman drill. Same idea as Fast Gun, but instead of patting the leg with the dominant hand, player raises both hands in the air similar to Superman when he is flying straight up into the stratosphere. Or, if you prefer, similar to signalling a touchdown (American-style football). Hands are raised to this position in between each ball being fed. Racquet is in non-dominant hand. As ball is fed, player quickly switches racquet to dominant hand and hits volley. Once again, the goal is to improve quickness at the net.
