The fluidity of the forehand volley is surprising. From the graphic video shown below I see total relaxation in the preparation of the volley where the racquet tip raises to the height of contact, then pushes to the ball as the “tip of the racquet naturally kicks back with lag.” This little movement creates amazing feel, relaxation and trust as the hand movement forward creates effortless power with little spin on the ball. Watching this video over and over will give you the feel of how the forehand volley is consistently placed well throughout a match. Enjoy it. This schematic was used by Vic Braden a great coach whom I had the pleasure to work for back in the 80’s when he brought his tennis camp to New Seabury on Cape Cod. When it rained we came to the club that I’m at now—The Falmouth Sports Center.
