Purple Taters

I here about some crazy things taking place when couples get together, but I’m not much into all that strange stuff. I’ve been there, but not on the couple level – my keys stay in my pocket if you know what I mean. But, when you are hanging out with some tennis friends, having dinner and a few many (oxymoron) drinks, enjoying a nice spring evening, and the host asks, “Have you seen…See More

Wait! Where Did It Go?

I imagine most (okay, some) of us, at some time (still do) use a shock absorber (vibration dampener) on our racquet strings even though scientific research has indicated that these offer little (okay, no) protection from the vibrations when your tennis racket strikes a ball or anything else (for you out-of-control, angry racquet-destroyers) for that matter.

Tennis League Team Practice

Now, I know this is a very broad subject, considering how many recreational tennis players, teams and leagues there are throughout our country and the world, but this misnomer need be addressed. I can't say I've experienced what takes place on every team, but I've been around the tennis league block. I've had many prior captains say something to the effect of, "We practice on…See More

"I Don't Play Net." What?!

I was playing on a mixed doubles (first time with this team) team years ago and the captain hadn't decided the final line-up until  match time. I was paired with this young lady who had good pace on both ground strokes and could move well laterally. I had only hit with or against her a few times in practice (more later on practice). However, our opponents didn't meet each other just…See More

Teaching Tennis Pros - Going It Alone

Are you looking for advice from a fellow teaching tennis pro? Well, you’re not going to find it here. This could be a good thing. Some of the best in the world at whatever they do, who are also quite good at teaching others of such, are not always that well prepared to promote themselves. I get it. I have had success with selling additional services along with almost any…See More
