The Volley

.........the easiest to learn of all the strokes in tennis because of its simplicity. The player takes a relaxed stance facing the net with feet about shoulder width apart and knees slightly flexed. The volley is executed by having the player simply set his/her racquet in order to ‚block the ball. There is little or no backswing. As players become more advanced, they will incorporate a quick shoulder turn, an abbreviated backswing and a short follow through.

The wrist should be slightly laid back to ensure the ball will land deep in the opponent court.
