Tennis Racquet Review: Babolat Aeropro Team

March 18th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

Babolat recommends this racquet for 3.5 players and I think that is the correct starting point. I think this is the perfect racquet for good junior players moving to their first adult frame. But I would encourage more experienced players to take a look at this frame. If this frame had been available that summer, it is for sure where I would have gone.

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 98 (16x19)

March 13th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

No doubt this review will be read and\or interpreted as my taking shots at Wilson, but everything I write here can be applied to every one of the ‘top’ racquet manufacturers.
This racquet is A) Not at all a useful tool\weapon for serious players in my mind; and B) Indicative of the wild design and manufacturing quality swings that are almost routine these days even for the major companies.

March 11th, 2013 by Marc Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

I had the most doubts about this frame when I first took them out of the box that they were sent to me in. The frame felt and looked thickish or truthfully very thick, and it seemed on first glance to be another one of those oversized snowshoe racquets that the companies pump out for the well heeled senior club market.

According to Statistic Brain, three of the top ten New Year’s Resolutions are health improvement related. Gym memberships increase by 30% in January, as eager to get in shape individuals crowd into neighborhood gyms, waiting their turn on the treadmills and weight machines. Those who prefer working out at home to avoid the grunting, groaning, waiting, and sweaty odor of a crowded gym, opt to purchase home equipment; usually a treadmill for a more private work out in a more ambient atmosphere.

Wilson, one of the United State’s largest sports equipment firms, has a long history with racquet sports.

Wilson Shock Shield is constructed with a hollow-core center that is filled with a shock-absorbing gel (Isozorb). This center core is then surrounded with a multi-filament outer wrap. Wilson Shock Shield is blue in color.

Tennis Racquet Review: Babolat Aero Pro Lite

February 18th, 2013 by Greg C

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

The Babolat Aero Pro Lite is updated for 2013 with a new logo, graphics, and a physical design that creates an even quicker stroke. Continuing with Babolat’s high-visibility graphics and black/white/yellow scheme, the Babolat Aero Pro Lite is an attractive racquet.  One benefit that I like is the fact that as the racquet ages it’s rather busy design helps conceal “battle scars.”

Good Sport or Bad Sport?

February 13th, 2013 by Suzi Martel

filed in Tennis News, Tennis Lifestyle, Youth Sports

Merriam-Webster defines sportsmanship as conduct becoming to one participating in a sport; that conduct being, fairness, respect for one’s opponent, and graciousness in winning or losing. Wikipedia touts that good sportsmanship is when teammates, opponents, coaches, and officials treat each other with respect and that the real winners in sports are those who know how to persevere and to behave with dignity – whether they win or lose the game.
