3 on 1

This drill is from Nick Bollettieri in the Jan/Feb 2014 issue of Tennis Magazine. He suggested it for a player who was having trouble hitting back to the opponent every time. I also like it for a good fitness and consistency workout for singles.

You will need at least four players. As the name suggests, play three on one end against one player in the other. You can set up any variety of scoring options:


  • Play first to 7 then rotate (regardless of winner).
  • Have all start with 7 points. Minus one point for every error. When someone gets to zero, rotate.
  • Play 7/11. Trio must get 11 before singles player gets 7.
