  1. SHOT BOX TIPS- “A 3rd SHOT”

(Q) How do I know when to hit a 3rd shot “DROP or “DRIVE”?

(A) Remember to always return a ball to the player’s feet that’s furthest from the Non-Volley Line. If the return of serve is short and high- you DRIVE. If the return is short and low (and the player is moving to the NVL)- you DROP.
