What Is A Kick Serve? | Ultimate Guide

Wow. I can only dream of hitting a kick serve like this. In the past couple of months I’ve been really interested in learning how this is done. I can use the slice and flat serves reasonably well, but I’d like to add some more variety to my game. The kick serve is a hard serve to learn and it will take a lot of work to use it effectively, but I’m hoping with regular practice I will be able to master it sooner rather than later. Here’s...

Flat Serve vs Kick Serve

When I started playing tennis again just over a year ago, all I could manage was a flat serve.

I always try and go to the park with her, whether it’s to have a run around on her scooter and go to the swings, or give her some fresh air and see the ducks in her pushchair. Anyway, last week we went for the latter option.. ..and unfortunately Mia wasn’t playing ball....

BabyZen YOYO vs gb Pockit

Mia is one lucky little girl. She’s only 2 and a half but she has already travelled on holiday to Turkey 3 times, and been to Russia to visit the in-laws 5 times already. Flying is stressful at the best of times, but with a baby or toddler to get through security and passport control, it makes it a lot harder. And then there’s the flight itself (gulp!) On a night flight, it has been considerably easier as Mia has been fairly good at...
