GBA Tennis launches first-ever video tennis instructional for iPhone + iPod touch



Neil Parker, who pens the excellent tennis instructional blog GBA Tennis - The Game Based Approach, has created the first beginner video tennis lesson for the iPhone/iPod touch called iTennisPro.

Using the teaching method called 'progressive tennis' the program instructs ballers of all ages on the basics of the game including groundies, volleys, serve, scoring, and even on-court etiquette (and we all know THAT'S needed!)

Other lessons include...

The Grips


How to rally using groundstokes with:

- The Impact Point


- Preparation


- The hitting zone using the wrist



How to volley with:

- A catching feeling


How to start the point using a serve with:

- Preparation


- The impact point


- A throwing feeling


How to keep score

As we all know beginner tennis lessons can become monotonous and frustrating at times. These video lessons demonstrate some fun, unique ways of learning the basics of the game and could give you a way of mixing things up as you develop your game. Plus, Neil's delivery and explanations are clear and easy to understand.
