I am interested to know what drills people practice with partner(s) or solo to try and improve their game. Here are a few of the drills Iíve been doing with practice partners.

Footwork crossover drill-

I got this from an Andy Murray vid.

30 seconds of this in-between other drills, a good laugh. Keep score if you like.

Return of Serve drill-

Server hits from the service line into the opponents service box, forcing very quick reactions from the returner.

I did this today for the first time with a practice partner, my successful return % at least doubled when I played games later on in the day.

Thanks to Ron Waite for this one, itís a good work out.


Iím always trying to think up other drills, and ways to make developing skills fun and memorable, and have a look out on the forum and web for interesting ones. Iíd love to know what people on this forum do.
