Coach’s Tip: Name It Doubles Drill
-Kim Somerville, Tennis Professional, Mill Creek Tennis Club


Contact Coach Kim: email: drkimsomerville@aol.com or call

Rates: $65/ Hr members, $80/ Hr non-members.

Next time you hit the court for a good doubles match, try some new tactics. ‘ To improve, something has to change’.

This drill helps players learn a variety of styles of play. Each player gets to choose a ‘rule’ for the next game or next four games or the next set.

EXAMPLES OF SOME ‘RULES’

1.     Returner has to lob the ball

2.      Server has to serve underhand

3. Serving team has to play Australian or ‘I’ formation

4. No bounce rule (after the serve, lose a point if the ball hits the ground)

5. Only one serve

6. Receiving team must play from the baseline

7. Back “I” formation. Server has to get the next ball no matter where it is hit.

8. Receiver must chip and charge

9. Receiver can only hit a forehand (or backhand) return

10. Everyone plays from the baseline

There are endless options to choose from, but the point is that if players are willing

 to try these tactics even if it is only a few games, they might realize how well

they work and then they can adopt these as a strategy when they desire.
