I'm going to be teaching a few family members to play tennis. They don't aspire to be great players, just good enough to have some fun and get some good exercise. At most, they'd play a 3.0-3.5 tournament every now and then. My female cousin has very little sports experience and doesn't have much of a throwing motion. I don't think teaching her the text book serve will work. I just can't see her developing it at this point in her life with this level of commitment. So, what serve should be taught to someone for whom a full blown serve is out of the question?
