The aim is to improve ground strokes, ball placement, and footwork

How: This drill is played as a normal tennis match. However 4 targets are set out on each side of the net. If a player hits the ball into 1 of the targets then they win the point automatically.


  • Change the positions of the targets
  • Less targets can be used
  • Smaller targets can be used
  • 1 target placed in each service box and they only count on serve.

Coaching Points:

  • Players should be encouraged to hit the ball when appropriate and not try and place the ball in the targets with every shot as they may leave their opponent an opportunity to win the rally.
