**Beginner Tennis lessons made easy**
Take a beginner tennis lesson with you anywhere!
With iTennisPro, players of all ages can quickly learn the basics of tennis: rallying, serving and keeping score.
We use a method of teaching endorsed by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) called progressive tennis. Progressive tennis is gaining in popularity because it's the fastest, easiest way for beginners to learn the game from the first lesson. Players start with a smaller court and slower ball so tennis is enjoyable!
Using high quality VIDEO instruction, we show you the most modern teaching techniques for beginners, step-by-step. iTennisPro will teach you how to: start a point by serving; maintain a rally; use a volley at the net; and learn how to keep score.
You'll be learning from Neil Parker, a highly certified tennis professional with over 20 years of coaching experience. Neil trains hundreds of coaches to use progressive tennis in their lessons. He also produces a range of multimedia, from the world's first interactive video lesson to the internationally acclaimed DVD, "Half court progressive tennis." Neil operates the site gbatennis.com and has authored coaching articles in MatchPoint magazine.

"Progressive tennis is becoming the standard way for new players to learn the game internationally and iTennisPro works well with the ITF's Play and Stay initiative. Having these lessons on a mobile device is great way to motivate new tennis fans to step on the court and experience the game successfully, which is a must to stay in the game"
LTA performance manager, Doubles' leader and Fed Cup Coach
"Everything is exceptionally well demonstrated and the video and sound quality are superb. A player can learn more by watching these simple and clear video clips than reading an entire book on technique and scoring. Any beginner can see everything necessary to play the game very quickly. This is the perfect use of a video app."
