How Often Should You Restring A Tennis Racquet?

I play tennis about once a week for a couple of hours (weather permitting). To be honest, I really would like to play more, but with family commitments it’s just not possible. If you’re a parent, I’m sure you understand… Anyway, the other week I was surprised when I broke a string during a tennis match. I bought a new tennis racquet in March 2019, which came with a standard set of tennis strings. Considering I don’t play that...

What Tennis Strings Do the Pros Use?

I recently upgraded my tennis strings as unfortunately one snapped in a doubles match. I didn’t even have a spare racket, so I had to borrow one for the rest of the game.

My years of experience playing this sport is probably a big factor as to why I like volleying in tennis and being more at the net than the baseline. Anyway, the reason for this blog post is, after a 20 year gap, I played badminton last month. One of my work colleagues needed another player for a doubles match. So I thought why not give it a go!

Platform vs Pinpoint Stance | Tennis Serve Tips

What’s the most important shot in tennis? Hopefully, you said the serve. This is because it’s the only shot where you can choose where to place the ball without having to react to your opponent. Think about it. If you want to hit a forehand winner down the line during a rally and move in to the net (just in case you opponent returns your shot), but instead they hit an awesome cross court drop shot to your backhand, it changes...

Best Tennis Ball Machines | Ultimate Buying Guide

Nothing beats having a tennis partner you can play with on a regular basis. It’s a great way to improve your game and work on different shots. However, if you REALLY want to get better, you need a proper practice routine… …and chances are, your tennis partner isn’t going to want to hit 50 balls so you can practice your 2 handed backhand. Yes, you can have coaching from a pro, but how are you going to work on things they’ve...
