    Biking with ball hopper

    No, seriously, I do this. I have a pull-behind bike trailer leftover from when my kids were little (think Burley Buggy, or InStep, the kind that toddlers ride in), and I throw the racquets, water bottles, and a 75-ball hopper full of balls in there and bike to public courts a few miles down the...

    Poly for 12 year old?

    I don't know how long it would take him to break synthetic gut or multifiliment, because he went from his 26" racquet (and whatever syngut it came prestrung with) directly to his fullsize which the guy strung with fullbed poly (Revolve) because I didn't know any better. He did not become a hard...

    Poly for 12 year old?

    I should add that I slightly goofed on his racquet type. It's actually a Wilson Ultra 100L, Strung Weight: 10.3 oz. / 292 grams, Unstrung Weight: 9.8 oz. / 277 grams Swingweight: 305. It's very confusing for there to be so many racquets with such similar names. Anyhow, I assume the advice to get...

    Poly for 12 year old?

    Need advice here. My son got his first full-size racquet (Wilson UL100) last year, and the pro shop racquet specialist, who saw him hit, set him up with Wilson Revolve, I think 17 gauge (I didn't know enough tennis to state a preference). When we got the Revolve cut out, a different stringer...

    Red writing Pro Penn's?

    I picked up some balls (that got left on a park court) that I really like, but I can't figure out exactly what kind they are. They say ProPenn in red with the number in black. When I google ProPenn online I see several different types but the photos only show the sleeves, not the balls, and the...

    Compression sleeve for woman w/narrow upper arm (no bicep)?

    I recently bought a Venom compression sleeve to wear while playing, to help with my elbow pain. It helps tremendously, but the upper arm portion is not tight enough. If I got the next size smaller, the lower arm part would be too tight. My upper arm circumference is no greater than my lower arm...

    Narrow-heel shoes that fit snug width-wise

    Can anyone recommend a women's shoe (I play only hardcourt) for me? I have a narrow heel that tends to slip, an extremely slender ankle, and a shallow/thin foot. Every pair of sneakers I've ever owned has had to be laced so that the two sides almost meet at the ankle in order to be supportive...
