i bought this book , i thought it might teach me something about tennis , but it hardly did anything. it's not a very interesting book. it's boring and childish. if you are very small then it might help you.

Format: Paperback
I have fond memories of watching tennis and also playing tennis. As children, my brothers and I spend many happy hours on a tennis court soaking up the sun. Even in college, tennis was still very popular. While outdoor tennis courts seem a bit more difficult to find where I live now, I did recently find one near my home.

This book is a nice refresher course. It is divided up into 11 sections:

Preparing to Play - Clothing, shoes, choosing a racquet, stretching and exercises.
On the Court
The Forehand
The Backhand
The Serve
Return Serve
The Forehand Volley
The Backhand Volley
Lob & Smash
Approach Play
The Game of Tennis

This is the perfect book to introduce you to the game of tennis because it teaches you all the basic elements and then gives you extra tips to improve your game. If you are learning tennis with a friend or taking a class, this book is handy for looking up step-by-step information and expert advice.
