August 21st, 2011 by Greg C

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Lifestyle

I used to play against this guy I called the “Human Tennis Ball Machine”.  You know—the type of player that makes you hit, hit, and hit until you finally make an error. EVERYTHING you send his way comes back and the rallies are long.  I would tell him…

Where have all the tennis shoes gone?

August 16th, 2011 by Greg C

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Lifestyle

I play a lot of tennis and thought I'd do an internet search on tennis shoes. You know, just to keep up on their latest and greatest designs and features. I've always believed that tennis shoes are the most important piece of tennis equipment. After all, you can't play well if

My experience on the tennis court

August 16th, 2011 by Celia Taghdiri

Over the years, my local tennis court has become my sanctuary and a hub for socializing and meeting others.  A few years ago, one of my co-workers invited me to play a short game during our lunch hour. I found the game to be a good way to exercise as well as a way to…

filed in Tennis Lifestyle

In the last couple of years, Prince has brought out some really good player racquets….and some really bad player racquets.
