3.16 PASSING
TOPSPIN SERVE OFF BOX
(advanced)

Minimum: 1-2 balls between 3
PARTICIPANTS:
Ideal: Sets of 3 athletes + coach observing
Maximum: 6 athletes + coach observing
Minimum: 2 athletes + coach assisting
DRILL OBJECTIVE
The objective of this drill is for passers to get
high repetitions of difficult serves.
Because the balls are coming from inside the
service line balls come at the passer faster
than normal which helps to improve reaction
time.
DRILL DESCRIPTION
Standing on a box a small distance in from
the baseline the athlete or coach drives
topspin serves (or float serves) to the
passers who then either play the ball out.
If the objective of the drill is solely passing
then having the balls caught will allow for
better focus on the pass.
DRILL VARIATIONS / MODIFICATIONS
The server should move to
different positions on the court to
simulate varying serves.
TEACHING POINTS
1 The athletes should commit to the pass. It is often
better for athletes to end up on the ground after a
good pass than make a bad pass and stay on their
feet.
2 Athletes should communicate early and confidently
with their partner as to who has the ball.
3 Athletes should watch the ball out of the servers
hand and watch the server to attempt to anticipate
where the ball is likely to go.
