There's Something Fishy Going on Here - Omega-3 and Your Heart Health

So I was making a tuna salad the other day and I noticed this small Omega 3 banner on the can of StarKist Solid White Albacore tuna. There are much tastier fresh, even frozen fish, for getting Omega-3, but I have been eating canned tuna (only Albacore now) as a quick and easy ingredient for a meal since I was a child. There are many health benefits to Omega-3's and I've listed…See More

ATP Hot Shot - Again, Ryan Harrison

Not to get carried away with Ryan Harrison, but since our article yesterday about his win over Grigor Dimitrov to get to the quarters at the Albierto Mexicano Telcel tournament in Acapulco, he shows up on the ATP Hot Shot with this flick-shot against Ivo Karlovic. Although he lost…See More

Are Your Tennis Members Having Fun?

Back in the mid-90s I had the good fortune of being a resident and club member of Raintree, a country club in Charlotte, NC. This was probably one of the best times I ever experienced as a member of a community and as a tennis player. Back then we had two 18-hole golf courses, a 19th hole, as well as an upstairs dining patio overlooking one of the 18th holes, fitness…See More

Blogs for Tennis Clubs and Leagues

There may be a variety of reasons why you need or want a blog to accompany your tennis club/center or tennis league web site. Your web site is not quite cutting it and you are not taking advantage of what you have to offer and your tennis community is clueless. You don't have the tools and flexibility to get your word out. To learn more, please go to Blogs for Tennis Clubs and Leagues or check out:…See More

Those Beguiling Tennis Geezers

The gentleman to the left, Father Time, usually shows up this time of year. One can usually find him in cartoons, editorials and even some greeting cards. Well, I'm accustomed to this and it truly doesn't remind me of much other than the coming new-year (which is wonderful), but then I stumbled upon the following picture along with the caption: Older Players Handing it to Some…See More

Tennis Balls for Christmas? What About Some Lessons?

from I Toad You SoWhat have I given my father for most of the last twenty Christmas holidays, along with some other small, more personal gifts strewn over the years? Tennis balls. It's like buying socks and underwear for kids (circa 1964) - you know they need it, but do they truly want or appreciate such for a…See More
