Doubles for Dummies Review by teaching professional Shane Anderson
Doubles for Dummies is a map for the beginning tennis traveler. In a time where we have high tech games and entertainment that require little physical movement, we have a call to action and a lifetime game. The first thing I noticed is the title. The title Doubles for Dummies tells you to come as you are, start here, and have fun. We are all becoming information seeking consumers, especially when it comes to our leisure time. Tennis is often a misunderstood sport. The reality is that we can start today with little expense enjoying an activity for the rest of our life. Doubles For Dummies gives the steps to take and information needed to play tennis.

Doubles For Dummies starts with a discussion about the equipment of tennis. Next we learn about tennis stroke fundamentals, followed by scoring basics. The sections on court positioning and shot selection will be a source of focus in every level of tennis. We read about finding tennis courts and other tennis players, both will be necessary and ever changing. The next section about being cool covers the physical part and a code of court behavior. Finally we are given direction to the next step of our tennis journey, if that may be for fun to meet people or meet a challenge in competition.

I have played tennis for 30 years and instructed tennis over 20 years. I continue to read new tennis instructional material for enjoyment and education. This information is easy to read and helpful to the tennis beginner. I recommend Doubles for Dummies to everyone interested in starting to play tennis.
