As with Winterton's other DVD, the video quality is excellent and it's easy to see why Winterton was so successful as the coach for the U.S. team. Skills are explained in detail and easy to understand. Winterton does a great job of not only showing technique, but also the potential for what may happen to one's game should they work on a few technical skills.
If you're new to racquetball, this is a great way to be introduced to the sport.
