Earlier I gave the North Carolina Tennis Association/Foundation free  access to THE LITTLE GREEN BOOK of TENNIS.  The same was offered free to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association and The National Federation of High School Athletics.

The Southern Tennis Association posted the following link to the free PDF of the book.  Now a simple click on the link below will freely access  the book to anyone.

********from the STA (Southern Tennis Association):

Coach Tom Parham has shared his 130-page book entitled The Little Green Book of Tennis. The book contains numerous tips and other material for tennis coaches.

Parham was inducted into the North Carolina Sports Hall of Fame in 2011. He coached tennis for over four decades at Atlantic Christian College (now Barton College) and Elon University.  His Barton teams won National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics titles in 1979 and 1984, and in 1990 it was Elon’s turn to enjoy its perch at the top of the NAIA ranks.

Parham won National Coach of the Year honors four times and is a member of eight halls of fame.  He had a 75 per cent win/loss record and ranks in the top 10 of all college tennis coaches with 600 wins.  Parham’s players were selected first team All American more than 30 times.

His teams played in 20 national tennis tournaments, finishing in the top ten 16 times and 10 of those were top five finishes.  Parham’s teams won 22 conference titles, including 11-year streaks at both Barton and Elon.

Thanks so much for sharing The Little Green Book of Tennis. I’ve made the book available on our website’s school tennis
