Level 1 – Positioning of net player – the ball is a magnet.

This video shows the positioning of the net player when the formation is 1 up 1 back v 1 up 1 back. There are 2 net positions in this formation, the Attack Volley Position (AVP) and Defence Volley Position (DVP). Net players should be in DVP when the ball is with their partner and move to AVP when their partner has safely hit the ball cross court and therefore the ball is opposite them. It is best to think of this as the ball is like a magnet, pulling the net player back towards their partner and then pushing them forward again.
