I got a call from Alan "CleverTennis.com" 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 night. Lot's of fun, laughing, loud music, fun smack talk on court, etc.
One goal for 2012 is to bring some players along to one of Alan's trips. I was also happy to hear that one of my favorite trash talkers, Chris Yoder, is a frequent pro on these trips. If you have not see the Patton/Yoder show, you are missing out!
Would you like to come along?
