AGAWAM – Paul Fein, an Agawam resident since 1979, recently published his fourth book titled “The Fein Points of Tennis,” an instructional guide of the sport that’s fit for all ages and levels.
According to a press release, Fein’s book touches upon a variety of topics that aren’t often talked about. This includes “the “modern forehand,” the “strike zone,” grip firmness, the critical importance of balance, and “the geometry of tennis.” In addition, he mentions “underemphasized topics” such as the half volley, match momentum, playing in the wind, wrong-footing, and more.
Over a long period of time, Fein has been writing and accumulating his best articles that make up the majority of his book. Of the 80 to 90 articles that he’s written, he incorporates about 50. He said that some of the earliest articles included in this book date back to 2007 and the most recent articles were written over the last few months.
