Senior Tennis

I am excited today to host my first ever senior tennis clinic.  Of course, I have had quite a few students who were advanced in years, but this is the first ever official program just for seniors.  These will be some 3.0/3.5 guys.   

Anecdote:  I had a 75 year old guy who only wanted to hit, and the rule was "I can hit it anywhere, but you Bill, must hit it to my Forehand.  And don't piss me off, or I am out of here".    That was a weekly 'lesson' for  years.   It turns out my…

Unexpected Phone Calls

I got a call from Alan "" Margot.   Truly a great friend that I do not see enough.   Alan was looking for a placement for a family who lives in my area, to save them a drive to where he teaches.   It was nice of him to think of me.   

One of the great things about Alan is that he hosts tennis trips to cool spots for 4.0-5.0 level players.   3 hour morning clinic workout, big lunch, 2 hours of killer doubles in the afternoon, great dinner, then some adult beverages at…

One important tip is to keep your front foot pointed somewhat into the direction of your slide. It's the one that's likely to catch in the clay and suffer a turned ankle. The back foot can afford to be sideways, because it will skip over any catches in the clay instead of getting jammed into them. Here’s a good illustration of how to slide into a forehand on clay. Note how the…

A brief history of me...part deux

I love Michael Jordan, "I succeed because I failed".  

I tried out for my high school tennis team as a senior in high school, I had begun playing again toward the end of my junior year.  I was ready, but...  I got the flu the week before tryouts and barfed for days, lost 10 pounds, and ONE challenge match.  Losing that match 6-4 meant I did not make the team.  Something better came... I ran track instead and made lifelong friends, and learned about become a true athlete.  By the…

A brief history of me...

Hi there, I guess its time to start blogging.   I just want you to know that I am someone who has and does struggle with self confidence, so its really amazing to me that during my struggles, and through working out my struggles that the following has happened.

1.  I started coaching Tennis a game I nearly quit out of frustration on at least 10 occasions.    In my early 20s I went through a 3 year period where I played maybe 6 times.

2. In my second go around as a Tennis Coach,…
