ok guys, just to show that im contributing to this forum, i'll give you guys a tip on how to imprrove on ur volleys. i think this tip is already a known fact but i would like to share it anyway. yesterday i played tennis and this pal of mine brought in "shuttlecocks" in stead of tennis balls. then we both played using the shuttlecock. he says it will improve the volley and power greatly...its kinda weird at first you know, you certainly need alot of power to hit the "shuttlec." and it'll encourage you to come to the net.after half an hour, both of us started using a normal tennis ball... safe to say, i played my best net game that day...you guys try it, use a "shuttlecock". gooday' mate'
