5.0 out of 5 stars Must reading for doubles players and doubles fans, February 5, 2006
This review is from: Doubles Tennis Tactics (Paperback)
"Doubles Tennis Tactics" is the most authoritative book written on this subject. Doubles requires specific shot selection, court positioning and movement patterns for each player: the server, server's partner, receiver, and receiver's partner. Louis Cayer, a distinguished coach, analyzes all that in depth. The chapter on playing styles analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of the five major playing styles, and that alone is reason enough for tournament players to buy this book. But the timeless question is: how can teams maximize teamwork to accentuate their strengths and minimize their weaknesses.

"Doubles Tennis Tactics" answers that brilliantly with expert tactics as well as more than 100 drills that will improve the skills and increase confidence so that those tactics work during competition. How do you become better at poaching? What is the I Formation, and why can it be highly effective? What are the best options for the receiving team to neutralize the serving team. Read "Doubles Tennis Tactics" and find the answers to these and many other important questions. You'll be glad you did -- whether you're a tournament player, recreational player or a fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good content, but it's mostly drills, September 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Doubles Tennis Tactics (Paperback)
Overall content is good. It's mostly drills though with some strategy info in the beginning and end sections.

I bought this book, because I saw the video by the same author. I think the video is a more efficient way to understand what he is saying, especially if you are a visual learner.
