    Me hitting, what is my NTRP

    Yeah I think that it is hard to base a rating on one video, some of the feedback is really interesting, especially all the comments about us looking 40! But yeah looking at the averages it looks like I'm probably a 4.5 or maybe a 5.0, but my serve and weight of groundstroke has to improve

    Me hitting, what is my NTRP

    h Yes I am based in the uk, my rating is 6.2 atm but should be going upto 6.1 in this ratings run. I have seen the conversion chart before its a pile of rubbish. My partner is a 6.1 but he plays better than that

    Me hitting, what is my NTRP

    h Thanks for the post, I think this is really accurate. I think my return and serve are the reasons why I'm not a better player, when I get into a rally with a better player I feel relatively confident although I could hit heavier.

    Me hitting, what is my NTRP

    h Thanks for the last two posts, yeah hopefully its the video that makes the pace look slow ha, my partner actually hits pretty hard. Consistency wise I missed a few too many returns and he actually won 4 and 4

    Me hitting, what is my NTRP

    here is a small part of the second set, footwork got slower as my fitness is really average, my partner kept drop shotting which was pretty effective, thanks again for the responses http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDtfw04EpeMhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDtfw04EpeM

    a You get 100 points for quarter finals. If your rating is 10.2 sorry but you have no chance. Even if your a good player because of your rating you will come up against a seed very quickly. If you look across some grade 3 results you normally see 5.2s - 6.2s winning grade 3 tournaments

    Junior LTA Thread - UK Only

    a You would get 250 points for winning the tournament. Your rating probably wouldn't go up but it depends on what your rating is now, the ratings of the people you beat in the tournament and how many wins and losses you have in this run. If you haven't been playing much recently I think you...

    Needs serious help with my serve!

    t Thanks for your comments, I think the weird foot shuffle is to do with wayward ball toss placement so I will practice that. My serve doesn't look too bad in this video but this was one of the better days in the last few weeks. I am also worried about the 'trophy' or 'nike tick' position when...

    Needs serious help with my serve!

    Hi I have here a vid with some clips of some matchplay from yesterday - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P05pkqh5cGw - I am the guy wearing black shorts. My serve recently has been very poor and while a few first serves went in, in this vid, I think there are some major technical issues. Can...

    MegaAge M1 vs M2

    t Ha! the sweetspots are slightly small, but overall I really like the M2 at stock spec. Its spin production was very high and I found it very easy to place volleys with it. Its not the best as a serving stick but it wasn't awful. I am now going to play around with some lead tape and see where...

    MegaAge M1 vs M2

    t Thanks for the feedback from your hit! My M2 has arrived and I am play testing tonight. All i have done is applied an overgrip and a shock absorber, but when I get some lead tape I would like to experiment. Where do you think the best place is to put lead tape on? top of the handle or 3/9, 2/10

    MegaAge M1 vs M2

    t Pimpmygame My M2 is arriving today so I will also playtest it with the stock specs. I am also looking to play around with it, e.g customising with lead tape etc not sure about the foam though! Hope it plays well George

    General Critique of strokes please

    t thanks for the feedback, in matches I normally use about 80% slice on the backhand side because it is one of my best shots but I definitely need improvement on my topspin backhand. Does anyone have some advice on the backhand?

    My hitting partner's strokes - feedback welcome

    thanks thanks for the feedback everyone ha skyzoo you are right the courts are not made for tennis, that is why we had to do feeding drills because the courts are so quick. So the general consensus is that he needs to not open up his shoulders so early and maybe look into having a more extreme...

    My hitting partner's strokes - feedback welcome

    t Thanks for the quick replies, I think his forehand is a strong weapon but we both tend to lean back and put all our body weight through the backhand. I would be really grateful if you could crit my vid aswell. I would be happy to give crit on other videos aswell thanks -...
