My opponent was up at the net to smash the tennis ball, This smash was close to my body, so I was able to return this shot by volleying it. After my return, he smashed the ball back, and I returned it with a lobbing forehand with a short backswing, and won the point.

Yeah when the smash is hit right at u its not very hard to get it back, just gotta block it! In dubs a guy tried to peg me on a smash and i vollied it right at him, he popped it up and i almost pegged him lol :)

Earlier this week while playing doubles I smashed on into the court that went sailing about 20' in the air, my partner and I where already celebrating the point and the opponent tracked the ball almost to the next court and returned it into play for their point. My partner and I stared at each other with blank faces as the ball bounced off our side of the court. Needless the say our opponents had a celebration of point.

Nice job and quick hands.

My team had a player who overextended to make a get and ended up on the ground and dropped his racket too. The other team, looking to be cute, hit a little soft one that was to bounce right at him, to rub salt in the wound over his less than graceful fall.

He quickly grabbed his racket, and then scrambled to a sitting position, then stroked a clean winner DTL. LMAO on that one!

Last night, playin dubs a guy smashed the ball right at me and low and I volleyed it short and inside out towards the guy at the baseline, he had no chance to get to it cause it was so short and had side spin. It was the first point of a tie breaker so that added to the impressiveness of it. Happy to say we won that tie-breaker 8-6, and the match.

i swing volleyed a smash unintentionally once, it was on the rise so it was able to reflex swing at it.

its not that difficult if you are close to the ball. the hard part is putting topspin on it to keep it in, otherwise you are just popping it up high

If you don't try, you won't hit it! Never give up.
