The New FREE LATA Lending Library

March 3, 2004 07:33 PM

The LATA Lending Library is a resource for program information and training materials. 

We currently have :

  • USA Team Tennis - RalleyBall format videos
    •    This video provides detailed information and tips for running the Ralleyball format. 
      • Ralleyball is a game altered slightly by modifying the traditional serving and scoring to make it easy to be successful and fun right away, while introducing tennis concepts, tennis terminology, and tennis skills.
  • Learn to Rally and Play Manual
    • This easy to use spiral-bound manual will help you get your students started the right way, by playing the game first, and then learning the strategy before concentrating on tennis skills.  Includes instructional court diagrams, exercises and useful resources.
  • Code of Conduct Cards/On-court Rules cards
  • Illustrated Introduction to the Rules of Tennis
    • A summary of the rules of tennis in simplified language and with appealing illustration.  Highly recommended for kids and beginning players (and spectators) of all ages.
  • USA Tennis Guide to Stretching
    • This easy to follow illustrated guide is the perfect tool to introduce your students and players to proper warm-up and warm-down techniques.

If you or anyone you know is interested, resources may be borrowed for 2 weeks at a time.
