What Research Tells the Coach about Tennis.
Gray, Marvin R.
Although tennis is becoming an increasingly popular game in the U.S., there exists little information on the advanced or competitive player. The purpose of this monograph is to give a nontechnical presentation of the research findings relative to the competitive tennis player. It is hoped that some of this information will encourage further investigation by interested readers. The monograph contains chapters on sociological and psychological aspects, physical and physiological characteristics, the mechanics of stroke production, organization and administration for interschool competition, and the need for additional research. It includes appendixes on the center of percussion and on the rules and regulations to govern intercollegiate dual match competition. (PB)
