We are a group of 8-12 beginner intermediate (2.5- 3.0 ) tennis players who play live-ball on Tuesday evenings, 7- 9pm in Pacific Palisades park (west side near Sunset Bl.). We need a ball feeder/ coach/ score keeper for our Tennis Meet-up.
We have enough people to keep two courts busy with 5-7 players per court and 1 ball feeder per court. We already have one ball feeder/ coach and need another.
We play mixed doubles live-ball where the coach stands behind the net, on the… Continue

So probably the greatest thing in the world to me besides my family and friends is tennis. It's been that way ever since I started playing seriously as a teen more than 20 years ago. I mean, really, I can find absolutely no fault (pun not intended) with it. From going out to hit with a buddy, playing a USTA tournament or watching a Wimbledon final, there's almost nothing like it.
If I'm obsessed with it and hundreds of thousands of people around the world are, too, then why, why, WHY… Continue

right now i only have 1 racquet and it is being strung because i broke my strings on monday. i have been running 2 miles everyday that i am not on the court and have been doing a jump rope. i do not know anymore exercises that could help my game on the courts. i thought that i would look on google but i would rather read it from professionals or expierenced players.

I’ve written quite a few articles on the sport of tennis but none of them really took off like the “Playing Your First Tournament” series that I did on www.tennis4you.com. Some of the local kids will be playing their first tournaments this school year so I thought I’d put this series up there for you to check out and enjoy!
Whether you are a 10-year-old junior or a 50-year-old woman who’s just started playing… Continue

Beyond what the title implicates, I'm what I'd like to call and advanced beginner. I'd love to play at least twice a week and step up my game accordingly. Dealing with people who don't really play but want to hasn't been all that fruitful so I'd figure I'd give this site a try. Best Mornings for me are Mon, Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat, And Sun around 10-Noon. I ride a bike and can play most anywhere in SM. Hit me up! Wanna play ASAP!

So a lot of our favorite players have lost in the past couple of days, huh, tennis fans?
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Maria Sharapova and Juan Martin del Potro have all been early-round casualties the past couple of days in Asia. For Tsonga, it's his first event in months, while del Potro is playing his second, both returning after injury-driven breaks. Sharapova's shoulder woes almost seem like an eon ago as she's been out there regularly competing. I'm lumping all three of them together,… Continue

Placing your serve is critical in doubles. If you are hitting short weak serves or serves to your opponent's strong side, you leave your partner vulnerable to attack at the net or you allow your opponent to control the points off the return.
You can remedy this by choosing a target and working on keeping your serve deep in the service box (except for the wide serve which should be placed shorter in the box). You will begin to control and win more points if you have good placement of… Continue
