Fireball Drill*

Develop aggressive serving and strategic returns to control court positioning.

In this drill, Player 1 hits a hard drive serve with as much pace as possible directly at Player 2, who is standing at the non-volley zone (NVZ) line. The goal is for Player 1 to practice powerful serves and for Player 2 to work on keeping their opponent at the back of the court.


Player 1 serves a hard drive at Player 2, positioned at the NVZ line. Player 2 returns the ball to the back of the court, aiming to keep Player 1 from approaching the NVZ. This drill emphasizes aggressive serving and strategic returns to control court positioning. The players engage in a rally scoring game to 11, with only one player serving. The drill can be played cross-court to add variety and challenge to the exercise.
