Coaches & Pros Bulletin Board

There’s a lot of satisfaction that comes from helping others play tennis at a higher level. Young or old, gifted or not, it’s a great thing to find the ways to make the game more enjoyable for so many people. But coaching is also a business and Tennisopolis is a great platform to connect with other coaches and pros about how to improve the business side of coaching.

Tennisopolis is committed to finding ways that allow you to more effectively get the word out about what you offer and a chance to use the network to drive revenue. Very soon there will be options for coaches and pros to better promote their services and share their expertise.

Laura had a league match and there was disagreement (to say it politely) as to which type of balls to use. Does the host team always get preference despite the altitude? Looking for input from those in the know like you. Check out the details Laura posted here:

thanks for your help,

I have made my living teaching and playing tennis and still write about, teach and play tennis. Going to play in a half hour. Lots of great tennis on ESPN today and till the end of the open you can get more tennis on TV in the USA then at any other time of the year! Watch the pro's from the ATP and WTA, and the Champions tours. You can learn so much by watching every move they make. Look at there technique, footwork, mental attitude, and many other things they do on and off the court. The guys in the booth like Justn Gimlestaub, Jon Mac, Jimmy Connors, Lindsy Davanport, Mary Joe Frenadez, Martina Navertolova, the Jensen bro's and so many others give great lessons on the game as you watch. it a free lesson if you watch, listen and learn.
