The drill is deceptively simple.
- Stand in the court
- Hit the ball slowly, straight back to yourself off of the front wall
At first, I thought Cliff was joking. But after spending a rather embarrassing 20 minutes chasing the ball around the court, I had to admit that I couldn’t do it.
The drill tests racquet control and swing mechanics. If your technical skills in both areas aren’t strong (and clearly mine aren’t), the drill quickly becomes challenging.
Watch Cliff do it.

The drill is nowhere near as easy as Cliff makes it look — and you can trust me on that!
