Running steps to the net

Running steps are a natural movement that’s easy to learn, so I always start with them before teaching more technical movement options.

Chassé to the net

Chassés are another option for moving to the net. They only work in certain circumstances, but sometimes they are the best option.

Cross-over step to the forehand net

Cross-over steps are useful when you want to cover a medium distance. They offer a compromise between chasses and running.

Hop step to backhand net

A hop-step is a good option when you want to cover a medium distance to your backhand net area.
