Hey there. Thanks for stopping by to visit. Remember, while you may have only (:90) between a game changeover, you've got the luxury of a lot more time here.
I've included some information I believe you may find helpful. Since most of my friends and students visiting this site are looking for information to help augment their tennis lessons or other aspects of the game I hope it's easy for you, too, to find what you need.
The links are a great resource and provide access to material 24/7. There's lots of information including tips on how to play better (smarter), nutrition, health, lifestyle and even some background about me that's sure to cure your insomnia. Here's a shameless plug - be sure to order my book Late Call - Healthy Tennis for the Older Young at Heart' via Amazon. All proceeds go to the Grassroots Tennis organization.
Feel free to give me a 'shout out' if you have any questions or if I can be of further assistance. I look forward to seeing you on-court. Remember, tennis rocks!
