Top Customer Reviews

When reading this book, you really get a sense that Vasquez Jr knows exactly what he's talking about, which is really reassuring. With praise from almost every tennis legend out there (think Martina Hingis, Andre Agassi etc) you'd think that Vasquez Jr has a lot to live up to in this book.
Well, he does; but he does it with style. The games he presents in his book are simple but brilliant. He grounds the games in real scientific reasoning (eg. this game helps to develop balance etc) but makes them fun. He guides you through each skill and each game like he was there coaching you.
This is a great book to just have fun with and dip into when you need to. Vasquez doesn't preach to the reader but invites us to pick and choose which of the 150 ways we think will help the tennis of our kids. A fantastic book!!!

I am always looking for ideas for games and drills relevant to tennis, and this is full of them. Some are a great for the very young and the beginners, but some do require some skills. Diagrams of them would help understand them quicker I feel.

HASH(0x98ed1aa4) out of 5 stars Not a book for beginners 26 July 2006
By Mirian - Published on Amazon.com
This is a good book for coaches and parents that know a lot about tennis, but if you are a parent looking for a book to help you with the basics, do not buy it. It does not help you with the basics, it does not have any photos or sketches -except for some cartoonish drawings- to help you with the drills, movements, position of your legs, arms, shoulders, etc.

I am giving this book 3 stars because it may be usefull for coaches and kids that know how to play tennis, otherwise I would give it less than that.

My wife is a certified tennis professional and works a lot with our school tennis team. She spends a lot of energy looking for ways to improve the kids' skills. This book is one of her favorites. It has a lot of easily explained games focusing on different skills. It is great for bringing variety to practices.

This book speaks to many levels of young players, but I mostly enjoyed the creative games that were well designed to interest my grandchildren while improving their eye-hand coordination, etc. It made it fun and do-able.

The games designated in this book are for class sizes of 4 or more. What about when you are a solo coach with 2 little beginners?
