Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Vic Braden has branched out into all aspects of tennis instruction. As an admitted sports junkie, Braden's motto is to "live, eat and breathe" tennis. He expects nothing less from his students. Vic Braden's Tennis for the Future, Vol. 1 is one of his earlier lessons in the skills of the game. Braden's book, Tennis 2000, incorporates all of his methods into one publication. But this early video addresses only the beginner's needs. Tennis for the Future originally aired on PBS for three years. Volume one covers forehand, backhand, serve, and volley. After mastering those basic maneuvers, viewers can seek out any number of Braden's instructional follow-ups or take advantage of his roving Tennis College, dedicated to spreading the love of the game.
