Then you tie the rope from one pipe to the other it should be around 8 feet over the net.Then when you practice you have them hit high and heavy over the rope on deep balls and have them hit under the rope when they are moving inside the court. You can have them do cross court high heavy balls above the rope and this forces them to keep the ball deep with plenty of spin and depth.This will really help them with the rally ball.Remember that they are not pushing high over the rope they need to hit high heavy with alot of racket head speed and really work on their movement between shots.
Thanks. That sounds like a really good drill.
