    Very pleased

  2. Amazon Customer

    This really helped me! Easy to read and I learned a lot. Would highly recommend anyone that’s getting into tennis.

  3. Amazon Customer

    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).

  4. Frank g.

  5. Roche

    Tout est dans le titre. Ce livre décrit très efficacement et très clairment les gestes de base du tennis et comment les réaliser. Très bon pour acquérir la bonne gestuelle dès les premières heures sur les courts.

  6. mele da mew

    Easy to follow and helpful steps to remember. Good illustrations. Gave it as a gift to a friend who is a 3.0 and ready to improve.

  7. Eric L

    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.

  8. Donna

    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.
