Physical educators and coaches of the world are faced with students and athletes of all ability levels when it comes to games and sports. Throughout this project, I analyzed an "expert" tennis player and three average tennis players, all possessing different abilities in performing the tennis serve, forehand, and backhand. Using a computer program called Dartfish; I was able to break down each subject's skill into its critical instances and phases. Then I compared the average players to the expert to show where improvements should be made with explanations as to why. Following, activities and games were provided for those who are looking for more options when teaching tennis.
