Next time I bring a table to the courts I'll give it a try.Unfortunately, I keep forgetting to pack my table!!! Dave May 23, 2016 at 1:36 pm - Reply Although, you wouldn't have the net you can do this with a wall. You have to understand the limitations and work on the a specific technique like the half volley and if the half volley isn't hit too hard then a 2nd volley. I like to climb the ladder hitting a ball machine. Heitor May 23, 2016 at 12:32 pm - Reply Really interesting drill! Thanks for sharing! Pho May 22, 2016 at 9:46 pm - Reply Great serving drill.

Thanks. tony May 22, 2016 at 2:01 am - Reply thanks that is a really great system and looks very workable going to try it out asap Julie May 21, 2016 at 8:12 pm - Reply That was the best drill I've seen for a long long time. Thanks Kirby!! Ian Westermann May 22, 2016 at 8:56 am - Reply You bet, Julie. Thanks for watching. Sally May 21, 2016 at 6:18 pm - Reply I liked the drill idea. I think it would have been even more effective if you could have a 2nd camera view from the opposite side and show Ian's serve, approach and put away in slow motion. Alessandro May 21, 2016 at 3:44 pm - Reply Intriguing idea! BA on the video it seems to have great fun potential too. Only problem: where to find the table and how to bring it to my courts… I'll think about it! Alessandro Keith May 21, 2016 at 2:09 pm - Reply Split steps? Or is this drill intended to bypass that since you pretty much know where the "return" is going to be? Ian Westermann May 21, 2016 at 3:11 pm - Reply That's a great question, Keith. It's subtle, but you'll notice that I took some quick stutter steps on both my turns right when the ball hit the table. You'll often see the pros do that in place of a full, wide "split step" while serving and volleying. I definitely recommend practicing good habits while you're out there! Noushin May 21, 2016 at 12:49 pm - Reply Many thanks for sharing your experience! Steve May 21, 2016 at 11:24 am - Reply Sorry, last question, are you placing the table just behind ther service line? Great drill. Gregg May 21, 2016 at 11:20 am - Reply Great fun! Steve May 21, 2016 at 10:23 am - Reply Thanks. It is tilted a little bit correct? Ian Westermann May 21, 2016 at 10:25 am - Reply It is naturally, yes. It's just laying on its side. Steve May 21, 2016 at 9:37 am - Reply Great practice when u can't find a partner. George May 21, 2016 at 9:26 am - Reply Great drill! I hadn't seen that one before. It "kills three birds" with one ball! Thanks guys (and Kirby!) Ian Westermann May 21, 2016 at 10:24 am - Reply Thanks for watching, George. Steve May 21, 2016 at 8:49 am - Reply How did you set up the table Ian Westermann May 21, 2016 at 9:06 am - Reply Nothing special, Steve. It's just laying on its side.
