    Raising Big Smiling Tennis Kids: a complete roadmap for every parent and coach by Keit Kattan
    Highly recommend this book for tennis parents. I read it right from the start when my kids declared tennis as their sport.

    I recently read, “Letters to an Aspiring Tennis Pro” by Alan G. Peyrouton and it blew me away. I wish it was around when my son was working so hard to make it on the challenger and satellite circuit. The author really knows his tennis. If any parent is helping their child or if there’s a player out there who has any intention of turning pro, I highly recommend this book. I found it on Amazon.
