Special tehnical processes from tennis are always accompanied by methodical recomandation.
The work through its content is structured on several chapters, detailing the history of tennis, the characteristics and trends in the evolution of tennis, the methodical aspects specific to the initiation, learning and consolidation of simple game play at beginners. For a more comprehensive technical analysis, in the description of technical procedures, the authors used a series of photographs and drawings.
The stages of learning to perform the correct and effective blows are done in certain stages (starting from the low to the increased complexity): learning the stroke mechanism; strengthening and refinement of strikes in isolated game conditions; strengthening and refining blows in gaming; game with theme and verification.
