    Any good drills with balls for 5-7-year-olds?

    Simple drill to NOT look up, and keep eye on the ball.

    This is a simple version of the same idea, it works very well. The key is the words should be said based on sight, not rhythm.

    When is HS tennis season in your state ?

    There are no mandated off-season practices anywhere in Maryland. The best players play year round in private clinics and private lessons. The notion that the MoCo girls have a special advantage playing in the fall is absurd.

    When is HS tennis season in your state ?

    HS coaches how do you determine your doubles line-up ?

    HS coaches how do you determine your doubles line-up ?

    High School coaches how do you determine your doubles line-up ? I have 10 boys that are about the same level. And the weather is minimizing our practice time. I do not think singles play is the best way to determine the best doubles players. Thanks for your help
