While tennis doesn't require a whole lot of gear or equipment, there are all kinds of things you can buy to trick out your racquet.  One of those is a vibration dampener.  Though not very expensive and often very cute, a vibration dampener is not something you should add to your racquet just for fun.  In this episode, I'll explain what a vibration dampener is, what it can do for your racquet, and why you might want to give one a try.  I'll even tell you about the special kind of vibration dampener that Andre Agassi used during his pro years.

Do you play a lot of doubles?  Are you a great partner?  I play tennis for three different tennis teams right now.  That means with shuffling line-ups and subs, I may have three different partners each week.  In the course of a month, I can theoretically be partnered with twelve different people!  So, each month, I may be learning how to achieve doubles success with twelve different partners.  And, twelve different partners may be sizing me up, considering my tennis game, and deciding if I am the kind of partner they ever want to play with again.  So, I try to not only play my own game well, I also try to be the person that anyone would be happy to find out they are partnered with.  In this episode, I'll give the tips I use to be a really good, hopefully great, tennis doubles partner.
