The Tray 

Modern volleys are hit with an open racquet face.  The racquet goes from open to more closed, according to the height of the shot.

On the forehand volley, feel as if you are carrying a tray on your right palm while you track the ball with your hand.  Then close the racquet face as you follow-through mostly across.

On the backhand volley, point the butt of the racquet to the ball.  That will immediately open the racquet face.  Again, hit mostly across.
