A volley in tennis can be very effective especially if your opponent doesn't have excellent footwork or speed. A well performed volley can easily win the point or set up a winning shot.
The volley allows you to attack after serves or approach the net following a deep groundstroke shot to your opponent. This makes it possible for you to finish off a point more quickly. The volley differs from other shots in that it does not involve a full swing. You should aim to swing at the shot as little as possible.
The last basic shot you should become comfortable with is the overhead (also called smash in some countries). You must be standing close to the net and hit the ball without bouncing. You need to hit the ball over your head (similarly to a serve), and that is why this shot is named the way it is.
