    Adidas Solecourt Boost Official Thread

    I like them. They run large, sized down to a 40 from a 41 or so. A bit high on the ankle which was irritating a bit. Just ordered a clay pair from TWE. I don’t wear out the soles (63, woman, but a 5.0/8.3 UTR player). Really liked the 2017 barricades, hated the 2018 (never bought them)...

    Canadian Travelling for USTA Tournaments?

    Need a USTA membership To play tournaments in the USA you need a USTA membership. You go to, then tournaments and search for tournaments near you. Create a mytennispage and then maybe tournaments in your area will appear...not sure that's true for Canadians.

    Trophies and other hardware as an adult - do you keep and display?

    I display national and international medals and gold, silver and bronze balls. But they aren't in the main living area. I discarded most of my other trophies otherwise when I moved a few years ago, after taking off the engraved piece. I worked hard for those USTA balls (age division, not NTRP)...

The USTA closed them not because of the IPIN, or not soley because of it, but...

    Any comments on Volkl balls? We used them in Turkey for a tournament...they seemed bigger in diameter than the Dunlop Fort balls (I compared them) and were slow and heavy feeling. The Americans weren't fans of the Volkls (or the slow clay). The Dunlop Fort ball is pretty good. Also, I've played...
