“I have known Mary Pat Faley for 33 years. We first met playing high school tennis together. We both took private lessons at a local club and we were an undefeated high school doubles team! We were taught “old school” tennis; “turn, step and hit”. Mary Pat and I went our different ways for college and it wasn’t until after I had my second daughter in preschool, that I went back to the tennis courts. Mary Pat was a teaching pro at the club I joined, but it took some time before I checked my pride and took a lesson from my former doubles partner! Why did I wait? Mary Pat is a master at teaching tennis technique. She explains technical information from a common sense point of view, breaking it down into sequences of 3 and then puts it all back together. She is easy to understand and has been most instrumental and invaluable in improving my game throughout the years. Everything she has taught me is in this book.”
