It is an uncomfortable fact that Great Britain rarely produces top tennis players, despite all the millions from Wimbledon available to the Lawn Tennis Association and the countless schemes and programmes that have been rolled out over the decades.
In this book, Steve Kitcher, a grass-roots coach of more than twenty-five years’ standing, not only explains with admirable clarity the “mess” that has existed for far too long, but also (and more importantly) provides a solution to it all, again with admirable clarity. His unique route into full-time tennis has given him an unerring insight into a problem that has confounded so many The solution is surprisingly simple, straightforward and easy to implement.
In short, this book brings genuine hope for the future and most certainly deserves a read, as well as some serious attention. It will also change your perception of tennis in this country.
“This study, reinforced by Steve’s long experience as a player and coach, deserves to be dissected by all those who care about the game and might well become a classic reference in years to come.”
Stephen Debenham (Tennis Writer for the Lawn Tennis Writers’ Association and Tennis Today magazine)
