    Summer Flex opened in AZ

    Just heard from the league coordinator they are doing a summer Flex league starting mid June. Still wish they would formalize Flex and enforce ratings and have them count, but might jump in and see how it goes. Any other regions opening summer leagues? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Footwork and movement practice (video)

    Thanks. I've been trying to decide between being more on the balls of my feet, or more firmly planted. I see a good variety of both in higher level players and pros. I find I am on my toes more often than not, especially on the BH side. But part of footwork I have noticed is pivoting for power...

    Serve as both an alley to hit between and inner/outer targets.

    Thanks! I have been missing that (among some short ball putaways) lately so felt so good to nail some at practice. Though...I hit with a few of the college kids just before the quarantine stuff and what is a great shot for my 40+ league gets negated often with them young legs and speed!

    Footwork and movement practice (video)

    Thanks! Yeah, I had a bunch of video over the years I kept for review and such, but in the last few years I started just putting it all out there. Still just for my review and learning, but figured others that are trying to improve might be interested in things I do and try. Also get a lot of...

    Footwork and movement practice (video)

    It is a funny thing about getting back in shape. I remember posting video here years back and one of the first comments was that I was using too much footwork, so back then I worked on efficiency. Now getting back in shape after a few years, I feel I wanna move a lot, but again need to consider...

    50 year old defeats former Division 1 college tennis player (USTA 4.5 Tennis)

    The guy played D1, qualified for a few futures tournaments, and is a known tennis coach. Definitely 4.0 working on being 4.5. :-D

    50 year old defeats former Division 1 college tennis player (USTA 4.5 Tennis)

    I think you missed the bit that the "fat guy" at the time he had 76 wins in USTA 5.0. I posted this video when it came out and there was much to-do about weight, but the guy is playing at the top of recreation leagues for fun and winning, so weight isn't an issue really. Sure, he would be...

    Like watching pressure washing wood. Calming sounds of a churning ball machine....:)

    50 year old defeats former Division 1 college tennis player (USTA 4.5 Tennis)

    Tennis Troll channel has some good stuff and the guy can play good tennis. Definitely a 4.5/5.0 player with experience. This is a better sample of both an ex D1 player, and the guy's skill level in match play. In the OP's video, the slice and style of play of his opponent definitely forced a lot...

    Waiter's Tray serve can be weapon!

    Waiter tray wasn't the catalyst, just the form the guy used for his big serve. He could very well have a better serve with better mechanics. But at rec level it is only results based and any hack stroke can produce results if practiced enough to become said weapon. The fact is still that in most...

    Footwork and movement practice (video)

    As Fergielicious says... "My body stay vicious, I be up in the gym just working on my fitness" Okay, maybe not quite vicious, but definitely been training and doing drills again so needed some live ball practice to work it into positioning, setup, and such. So that is what I worked on...
