Tennis (Steps to Success S.)

Tennis (Steps to Success S.)

by JimBrown (Author)


This book aims to make learning the basic skills and strategies of tennis easier. Like the first edition, this second edition provides a sequential programme of lessons and drills that allow players to learn at their own pace and develop the fundamentals they need to play competitive tennis. The book includes 128 illustrations that show players proper tennis strokes and strategies and more than 100 drills to help them develop their game. Each drill comes with instructions that explain how to either increase or decrease the difficulty of the drill according to ability level. Players who use this book will learn how to develop powerful forehand and backhand groundstrokes; select the appropriate serve for their game; execute and effectively use the volley, lob, overhead smash, half volley and drop shot, as well as how to return each shot; put tennis strokes to their best use in singles and doubles play; adjust strokes and strategies when facing different kinds of players, court conditions and weather conditions; and handle mental distractions and improve playing concentration.
