This is a tennis coaching manual focusing on getting your grip and your positioning (feet, body, racquet, etc) right for each stroke. Part One looks at each of the strokes in turn, taking a step-by-step approach and using annotated multi-angle photography to demonstrate each one from five angles: front, back, left, right and above. Each spread in this section also contains a short mantra for one of its key coaching points. Part Two outlines basic tactics and strategy for both singles and doubles matches.
