That's what I've heard. It's a lot of work for little reward to put on these tournaments (unless you're looking at the bigger picture, tourist dollars.) The local CTA however doesn't get much out of it.
Problem is Wilmington and Asheville are probably the two most desirable destinations in the state.
NC Tennis was in a no win situation. No matter how they determined who would advance someone would've been mad. Perhaps not refer to the lottery winner as the champ. Just say they've won the...
Got an email from usta today touting their USTA Tennis app. Was pretty excited that thinking they had a replacement for the current Tennislink app. Then I downloaded it. They should've spent their money on a flaming bag of crap instead. All the league info in the new app is nothing but the...
If I wasn't planning to play mixed with my wife I wouldn't play. No there are times when availability dictates we may need to play with a different partner but if we are both in the lineup then we are playing together.
From my understanding it's only your point if you can reasonably interpret it as a line call. If you hit a lob and your opponent says 'out' as the ball is crossing the net because they think it's going to be wide/long then it's not reasonable for you to interpret that as a line call and your...

Starting in 2024, all Mixed Doubles Leagues in...
If you want clay courts look at the Piedmont Triad region of NC. Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, Burlington. Pretty low cost of living, lots of tennis (Greensboro alone has 100+ soft courts including at least 26 public soft courts.) Lots of private clubs for every budget...
Don't compromise your ethics by hooking them back. Question the calls and leave more margin for error in your shot selection.
Any coach that says hooking back is the correct way to handle it would not get my $ in the future.
I wouldn't swear off tennis just yet. The folks I know that have had hip replacements are playing better tennis now than they did before their surgery. Maybe just try to play socially instead of league tennis.
Also there's nothing wrong with pickleball. You should give it a shot. It's quite...
