Advice for Recreational Player Welcome

It's been a few months since I last posted on this forum, so forgive me if I'm making some strange mistake that embarrass myself.

I'd appreciate some comments about a little practise session with my family (not visible in video) that is in the film below.

As for the racquet, my normal one is at the shop for re-stringing.

My playing mates say that my backhand is significantly my stronger side; I've been working on that slice for some time, and looked at lots of good slices (Rosewall in particular). I'm not doing a good job at that, but it's been working for me at this pace. :)

Can you people view the video?

I noticed that you aren't responding, and I though there might be some problem with the video on YouTube.

I don't know what your tennis goal is. If you are trying to develop modern strokes, you need to have core rotation. You are using your arm primarily for power, on both wings, which is not ideal. This guy has a good modern forehand instructional video

If you are going for 1920s-esque strokes, then you are doing a good job :)

My tennis goal is to keep the ball in so that my family doesn't need to pick up balls all the time.

1920s? I was hoping that it was '60s.

How's the slice backhand? :-|

And I think I'm turning my shoulders? Even just a bit?
