Five Star Review on Amazon By Greg Lumb
Bill has greatly articulated the process of running a highly successful high school program, pulling from his many years of doing just that!
As a first year high school coach, this book has been wonderful in filling in some of the unknown areas that only experience or a resource like this can provide.
This country’s high schools are one of the places our great sport needs to do a better job of introducing tennis, and this book assists those who may or may not know much about the game to do just that!
