Tennis Quick Tips | Fun, Fast and Easy Tennis - No Lessons Required

Has your tennis team resorted to "stacking" the lines?  Also known as dropping the lines or flipping the lines.  If you have, then you know it can be a controversial topic for any captain and can lead to sometimes disastrous consequences.  In this episode, I'm interviewing one of my own team captains and someone who has served in that capacity for many years as well as working on the boards for a variety of tennis leagues.  Her name is Mary Baird and yes, she has stacked the lines.  But she's been able to do it in a positive way that not only keeps the team from disintegrating but actually produces results.  So listen in to learn all about the pros and cons of stacking the lines.

Do you have a "Plan B" for every tennis match you play? If not, you need to get one and soon. Because the way you like to play tennis, the style of play that highlights your strengths and downplays your weaknesses, may not necessarily be the style of play that is going to win you the match. In this week's episode of Tennis Quick Tips, I'm talking about the importance of having more than one strategy to win a match.

Are you using the split step in your tennis play? Many players think the split step is unnecessary.  Or not worth making the effort to use.  A lot of us aren't even sure what the split step is.  I used to be a player like that but, when I was ready to take my tennis up a notch, especially at the net, I realized I had to make the split step part of my game.  In this episode, I'll tell you just what the split step is, why you should be using it, and how you can incorporate it into your own tennis game.

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY COMMENTS IN THIS EPISODE ARE REGARDING UNOFFICIATED MATCHES.  IN OFFICIATED MATCHES AND TOURNAMENTS, THE RULES AND REGULATIONS REGARDING LATENESS AND DEFAULTS APPLY.

In this week’s episode, we’re going to talk about something that … the bottom line is, it’s a matter of tennis etiquette, and I don’t think tennis etiquette is something that we hear too much about. We recreational players out there, whether we’re playing for fun or playing as part of a league, playing a tournament, we know that tennis etiquette is often just as important and impactful of what happens on the court as the rules. So in this episode, I’m going to talk a little about the rules and a lot about the etiquette of forfeiting a tennis match.
