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

    It depends on the skill level..... targets big or small, consistency goals 10 shots in row, rally with sponge balls I have more games if you have a group

    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 ?

    Because Montgomery County Maryland has dominated the state tournament. They are the only county in the state that has the girls in the fall and the boys in the spring. The other counties feel the Montgomery County girls have an unfair advantage playing in the fall. So, the other counties voted...

    When is HS tennis season in your state ?

    thank you, Maryland is forcing the girls to play in the spring, at the same time as the boys. It is a foolish idea; 1) courts must be shared 2) coaches must choose to coach girls or boys 3) Bad weather 4) it will limit participation

    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

    Coaches pay scale for top playing pros

    Robert Lansdorp was paid "nothing" from a top player. True the story focused on the lower level players. And a thousand dollars a week during the season for a top 50 (?) player is next to nothing. I would think top coaches would get a percentage of prize money. I thought golf caddies got a...

    Lessons and dead balls..

    ahhhh, take lessons at another place. Seriously, you cannot expect brand new balls. However, if you have "dead " balls you are not taking lessons from a high quality pro. The balls should bounce about 80% as high and fast as new ones.

    Lessons.com ?

    do any teaching pros have any positive experiences with this site. They charge you to make offers to potential new students. I keep getting referrals to make offers to...... it is 30 degrees and they know I do not teach indoors It sure looks like a scam
