A disussion about the 5 different types of volleys that exist in tennis.
Very clear and concise instruction. I would have added the swinging volley and the drop volley.
Thanks, always good information
You’re welcome Jack
Always look forward to these tips. I often forward to my students. The only thing I would add is to reinforce the use of the Continental grip when executing the volley.
Great stuff. Thanks for sharing this.
No problem Tim
it’s been about one year that i’m following you from France,
all your videos are great for me, i’m a very average recreational player 52 y.o. and about 4.0 by your count.
It seems crazy for me to learn more and more about inside real coaching by you than by any coach for recreational player in france. I’m sorry to say that to my french team mate but you mastered the coaching way over what i thought could be and for that i’m very grateful.
It helps me a lot trying to plan training with my friends who are interested in progress.
Thank you again very much Jorge
by the way any chance for a camp with you for my group level ?
ps : i’m not sure it was perfectly clear english but i’m sure you got it
Hi Jorge: That was an awesome breakdown of the different types of volleys. It was simple and concise. I will use it in my clinics. Thank you
Can break it down into an approach volley or block volley. With or without shoulder involvement. Why make it any more complicated?
Hi Gary, I have found that explaining it this way actually make it LESS complicated. At least that is what has worked for my students. I simply had too many of them lumping all volleys into the same category.
Excellent break down! Thanks Jorge. Great help with that tweener volley as well. That is the toughest one in my book!
Thanks for the heat video. I have a few adult begginers and what do you think I should start teach them in volleys..? The way you present them?
Thanks fir all the great info!
Lia , Greece!
Hi Jorge,like always really good info.What do you think about a 6th volley “the swinging volley”…I see a lot of recreational players at higher levels using it against “moon balls”.
I like that as a 6th option. It is almost exclusively what happens on the WTA when they are volley near no-mans land.
Excellent ! Very clear, concise and well explain ! Thank you.
enjoyed the named five group Names
Jorge, Enjoy your instruction videos. Per the problem volleys, I have found sometimes we use too much open wrists on high volleys rather than punching straight through. Thanks again. Bob Bernstein
I agree Bob. I say it is like a high 5… in other words, when I give a High 5 there is no follow through.
A great video for me. Especially how to hit that d____d tweener! Thank you.
Excellent differentiation. Right on point – especially regarding the last type, the high, almost overhead type and definitely the one I miss the most. Thanks much!
Very good, a brilliant refresher lesson on the volleys, many thanks. Dave Smith Belfast
Thanks for the tip…
Great video (again — as usual). Thanks for helping us catagorize/classify the different types of volleys which helps keep us tennis pros organized in teaching. I think we all know this in our teaching, but to help students understand to treat the shots differently depending on the situation is crucial. Keep up the great work buddy.
Thank you, Jorge. Very clear explanation and masterful teaching.
Muy bueno Jorge, muy claro los 5 tipos de voleas, un saludo desde Mexico
I have attended a number of tennis clinics and never knew that there were more than two or three types of follies. Thanks.
Can you give me drills to practice these 5 different type of volleys in a group of 4-6 students. I prefer everybody to do something.
I would check out my drills website that has more than 1,700 drills. http://www.tennisdrills.tv You can get a bunch of free samples on there as well.
Great video George! Would love to hear about leverage and body position on volleys as well👍
Hi Jorge, Great 5 different types volley drills for all levels and ages, specially these days gor young players, who live on the baseline, I am old school big on volleys, and teach
question, I teach my students, what I call volley any where on the crt, if u r playing dbls r singles, and the ball us hit, u don’t any other options, will that be the 5th volley u r talking about in the video, u r thoughts,
Yes Pattu, I think that s the fifth volley type in the video
Talking about, volley would be very cool to upload a slow motion video of Misha Zverev.
Very helpful. Thank you!
