gotta support the smaller local shops as much as possible - we are lucky to have guys like TW but there needs to be room for the local guys as well.
It's been a bit of a culture shock in Austin where there are NO tennis specialty shops...after being a tennis bum in Atlanta for over two decades! I can believe some diehards would drive down for good service
. I know we have individual stringers at some of the parks/clubs; but nothing like the shops back in GA. Even Golf s m i t h has gotten out of tennis. Good thing I'm 99% retired.
