Hot Box Drill

Jerry Cape, USPTA, USRSA, Tecnifibre TEAM shows a drill good for improving doubles play using poaching/intercepting. Ideally there should be eight players (four on each side) as ONLY the lone net player on each team can score. All other players rotate in-and-out after an error is made. Other rules are no lobbing, no points lost when the volleyer misses and when any of the baseline players hit an error or a winner. Again, points are awarded ONLY when the net player hits a winning volley.
