have you ever played a game called dropball? i was first introduced to the game 2 years ago from my school coach. its really fun and helps you work on touch shots and angles. it improves net play significantly and helps to return lobs over your head. now this is how the game works. you can play to 11 or 15 or whatever you like. both players start up at the net. one player takes the ball and balances it on top of the net in the middle. then they let the ball just roll off onto the receiver's side of the court and the point starts. after it takes it's first bounce, you may hit it any way you like to get it over the net. for first timers, dont get frustrated if your hitting into the net since the ball just rolls off the net. work on lobbing with topspin right off the start, or you can use those nasty angles that just make it over the net. get it? dropball! now start playing.
