Hi Mike,

Start the rally with a flat serve and get the rhythm going.  Get your training partner to hit the ball one to your forehand side and the next to your backhand side.  Then you can hit the ball, use your sidestepping footwork and move to the other side and hit the next ball.   I think an easy one to start with is to hit both of these balls with a forehand.

Take a look at our free download of Training Drills that will give you lots of ideas of how to train your footwork.  It is an important part of learning the game.
