Volleys

The volley is a shot where the player is up at the net, and simply taps the ball without a swing. It is mostly used in doubles, and sometimes singles players will run up to the net to volley a ball past the opposition.

As you can see, the player is putting a tad of backspin on the ball to make the bounce harder to return. This means that the point will be more in his favor.
