The aim is to improve concentration, and serving.

How: This drill is just played as a normal singles or doubles game, but the server is only allowed 1 serve on each point. If the serve misses then the point goes to the opposing player or team.

Progressions:

  • Make the service box smaller with markers, or mark out small boxes within the service box for the server to concentrate on aiming at.

Coaching Points:

  • The server should play the only serve as a 2nd serve, so it should be slower but with more spin than a 1st serve. Placement is very important on these serves not to give an opponent an easy winner.
