by Ross Dean

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
This book contains life experiences, humorous stories, some thought provoking tales and lessons learned or reinforced by teaching tennis to a wide range of ages and abilities. My goal has been to give each person the best experience possible. I work with the person at their level and strive to enhance their skills and enjoyment of this great game.
I have tried to show people of all ages the benefits of tennis. It is a spring board to almost any other sport or activity one may pursue. I started competing in a wide range of sports at an early age. Tennis combines the best for all sports. The movement on the court is up, back, side to side, reaching and the use of both hands. This also includes strategy and endurance. In singles one is out there by themselves and the result comes based upon how much the individual works. Nothing worthwhile comes easy. It is this experience combined with my love of teaching that I want to get across to the reader. Tennis is a great life lesson but should be fun. It also can be played by all ages, regardless of skill or ailments. There are too many things that we have to do, tennis should not be one of them. Enjoy the game.
