Coach Dick Gould makes learning the basic skills and strategies of tennis easy and fun! He provides the students with step-by-step instruction, designed to develop their confidence and skill level. Among the topics covered on this DVD are: racquet control drills, forehand, backhand, movement drills, rally drills, practice games, net play, serving and how to keep score. This comprehensive DVD is an invaluable guide for young players, parents and coaches. 81 minutes. 2006.

About the Coach: Few coaches in the history of any sport have been able to reach the level of success that Dick Gould has achieved at Stanford. After coaching for 38 years and winning 17 national titles, Coach Gould retired at the end of the 2003-04 season and assumed the position of Director of Tennis. Coach Gould was named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Coach of the Decade in the 1980’s and again in the 1990’s.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very old techniques September 9, 2006
By Jim Kap

Unfortunately Mr. Gould is teaching tennis methods on this DVD that have been completely debunked over the past 5 years. All the top tennis academies now teach the Oscar Wegner method of an open stance, not running with the racquet back, and moving naturally to the ball. All professional tennis players also use the Wegner method and not the Gould method. I strongly discourage any parent from using this DVD to teach their children the modern game of tennis.

I liked this book for beginners or Parents to use for it covers the fundamentals of tennis prep work and
how to be ready for the ball and to learn how to volley. There are many existing styles and tweaks to how to
introduce the game, and skill sets to kids, however for the basics I find this book to be highly effective.

I wanted it to train my daughter. It turns out to be a complete waste of money.
There is nothing of interest in this video.
