Pharr Tennis Center drills Sat, 6/14

This was a really fun event. I joined the low intermediate group and although I think I was down a level it was certainly good practice! They mixed up the drills so that we did baseline hitting (as well as playing points), volleys, overheads, serves (some return practice but not much). For $5 you really could not beat it. I don't know about the other groups involved, but ours did not include any tips from the coaches involved - just the hitting drills. Helpful, and hey for $5 who expected… Continue

Tuesday night Beginner's Tennis group event

Event page

Had a great time tonight - met Matt, LisaLou and Rosemary and got in some good groundstroke practice. Lisa took some pics with my camera (ok, HOW did I not get pics of you and Rosemary??) of Matt and I so I'll get those uploaded as soon as I can.

I'd definitely recommend this informal get-together to anyone - there were several unused courts!

Tom has great ground strokes and was even gracious enough to give me some good pointers on the topspin forehand, which I really appreciated. He seems like a nice guy and someone I would enjoy playing again. We made… Continue

New Racquet - the bug has really hit now!



So I had to get a new racquet tonight, as mine seems to have disappeared in my latest move. Good excuse, anyway! I decided to hold off buying anything new and expensive, and ended up buying the Wilson nCode N4 (oversize). My old one was a Prince, oversize from God only knows what year. I paid $99 at Golfsmith, it was prestrung and that also narrowed the decision down. I went with a 4 1/2 so I can use an overgrip and get to the 4 5/8 I need. The… Continue

Just joined today!

I found this site completely by accident, and I think it's just what I'm looking for. Watching the French Open highlights has re-sparked my interest in playing. Too bad for me my friends are not into tennis, and I can't drag my 11 year old daughter to play with me!



I played a lot in high school (obviously that was a LONG time ago - heck we used wood rackets still!), I was 3rd on my team in singles and lettered in Tennis. I was also the #1 doubles team with my best friend Tom. I had a… Continue
