Bring Your Racquet
Steven White brings twenty-five years of tennis teaching experience to focus on the fundamentals of the game for the young, the beginning, and the improving player. The book allows young readers to learn the basic strokes of tennis from easy-to-follow text, written with a combination of simple and more complex sentences and carefully introducing new vocabulary.

Grassroots Tennis: Helping Parents and Coaches Teach Kids
Written by a certified instructor with the Professional Tennis Registry, the goal of this guide is to educate parents and coaches who want to effectively teach their kids from the grassroots level to the edge of competition and beyond. The physical, mental, and emotional abilities and limitations are discussed and the elements of child growth and development principles are considered. This guide also introduces the reader to stroke development in small children and gives instruction on teaching methods. For the child in the teen years, “Grassroots Tennis…” covers material and information associated with the phases of player development, practice techniques, game styles, and performance. Recognizing the fact that some parents and coaches come to the courts completely void of a tennis frame of reference, this guide also discusses material on giving lessons, explaining techniques, instructing, court safety, making corrections, speaking, using equipment, and organizing & planning.
