Editorial Reviews


"This book is going to help your game."--Luke Jensen, member, United States Davis Cup Team

From the Back Cover

Tennis is the ideal sport. It can be played at any time of year, at any point in life, and with very little equipment and as few as two people. The only other requirement to more skilled and enjoyable tennis is Essential Tennis, Scott Perlstein's comprehensive new guide to learning and enjoying every phase of this great game.Beginning with details on equipment, clothing, rules, and court etiquette, Perlstein goes on to share advice from his many years' experience teaching tennis to players of all skill levels. Basic techniques are covered in full, including grip, how to move, and vital shots such as the serve, the volley, lobs and groundstrokes. There are chapters on common mistakes and their cures, basic and advanced strategies, doubles play, the importance of a competitive mental attitude, and notes on diagnosing faults and improving one's game.Essential Tennis will work wonders for any tennis player - novice, weekender, or grand-slammer. (6 X 9, 152 pages, b&w photos, diagrams)
