Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 98 (18 x 20)

February 11th, 2013 by Mark Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

After hitting with the new Wilson Blade 93 tennis racquet, I was understandably excited to hit with some of the other new frames in the Wilson line. I was thinking that the Blade 98 would be a nice frame for less experienced players. I cannot even begin to state how misplaced that youthful optimism was.

Tennis Racquet Review: Wilson Blade 93

January 28th, 2013 by Mark Pinckney

filed in Tennis Product Reviews, Tennis Racquet Reviews

For a long time now I have been off Wilson racquets. They have always made the best frames in my mind, in a historical sense, but the last few years a lot of their ‘player’ frames felt clunky and unwieldy. This was true even for someone who had played with Wilson racquets for much of his life and was therefore predisposed to give a new Wilson offering a favorable look.

Edwards Tennis Nets: You Don’t Hear About Them, Because They Work So Well

When it comes to managing sports facilities, it’s a great day when certain topics don’t come up. If you operated softball diamonds for championship tournaments, you wouldn’t want to deal with complaints about the dimensions of the playing fields. At the end of the tournament, it’s your hope that no one ever brings the matter up, because no one ever gives praise for a properly configured field. In tennis it’s no different. If tennis nets, posts and the court surface are not within specifications, people will complain but if they are reliable no one notices or comments.

Many campaigns have been launched in the name of improving diet and fitness in recent years. A few years ago, the National Football League started the Play 60 campaign encouraging children to be active at least 60 minutes a day in an effort to prevent child obesity. Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop founded Shape Up America in 1994 to address obesity. Many other organizations dedicated to health and fitness like these were created to promote and educate the public about fitness and more healthy lifestyles. One of the more unusual ones, Project Tennis Backboard, seeks to make tennis backboards more available to the public.

OUCH! Isn’t Tennis Elbow Enough?

When you think of sports that require a lot of jumping, I’ll bet the last sport that crosses your mind is tennis; volleyball and basketball, yes, but tennis, unlikely. However, when it comes to Patellar Tendinitis, better known as Jumper’s Knee, no court sport seems to be spared. Just ask world class tennis Pro Rafael Nadal who has been suffering from this condition for years. Missing golden career opportunity, after opportunity, from the London Olympics and Wimbledon in 2009, to this year’s US Open in New York, this young athlete still holds an impressive 11 Grand Slam titles.

Is Bodybuilding Needed in Tennis?

October 29th, 2012 by Do It Tennis

filed in Tennis Lifestyle

If you look at Rafael Nadal’s physique, you can tell that he’s got some serious workout routines. The prominent biceps he has and those rock hard abs tell you that he’s been pretty busy not just at the court, but at the gym as well. You’re probably guessing that he’s doing some bodybuilding workouts.
