Sports exercises and games can be difficult to explain, but Matsuzaki does an excellent job of describing tennis exercises. Her writing style is clear and straightforward. Matsuzaki has given me an arsenal of fun and skill-building tennis activities. My personal favorite: The Pick Line Game (p. 81).

It was for my beginner tennis class. The pictures were clear and great for explaining things. It also explains the rules and a couple more advanced points. It's a good book for beginners if you check it out at the library(?) and skim through it quickly.

I think it's a great place to start if you don't know anything about tennis. It's short enough to go through it briefly so you can actually get onto the court.

My Dad (85 years young) checked this out at the library and told me it was the best book on Tennis that he had read. He said the directions are easy to follow and there are clear photos to show the instructions. So, I decided to buy it for him as a gift.
