Recreational athletes will enjoy using this resource because they will learn by doing, spending less time reading and more time on the court. With explicit yet succinct instructions and accompanying photographs, this book makes it easy for students to get right into the game.

Tennis Fundamentals covers the essential skills of the game with chapters on grips, footwork, forehands, backhands, lobs, volleys, overhead smashes, drop shots, the serve, and return of serve. It also covers tactical approaches for both singles and doubles play, as well as scoring, equipment, and etiquette.
