Tennis Tips and Information from Jeff

Workout gear Training Tips Fitness Training tips Tennis Tip of Week Tennis

Lessons: Improving Your Backhand Volley with Atlanta Tennis Coach Jeff MichaudFor Good Tennis Backhand Volleys Give the "Safe" SignA common flaw in many club players' backhand volleys is their tendency to chop down on the ball, allowing the racquet head to drop below wrist level.

Usually, the result is a volley hit off-balance with so little pace and control that it catches the net. To hit a more effective backhand volley, keep your wrist firm and, instead of chopping down on the ball, flatten out your volleying motion.

Think of yourself as a baseball umpire giving a "safe" signal when you hit the ball. As you punch forward on your volley, your free arm should extend away from your body simultaneously in the opposite direction to help you maintain your balance and keep your volleying motion crisp and compact. By hitting "safe" and sure backhands volleys, you'll find yourself scoring more often at the net. This tip goes equally well for any backhand shot in tennis.

This tip comes from the USPTA website tip of the day. Come out and see Atlanta Tennis Coach Jeff Michaud to learn more useful tennis tips.Atlanta Round Robin Group TennisThe City of Atlanta has several very good tennis centers that provide a variety of programs from Cardio Tennis, tennis clinics as well as Round Robin Tennis events.

When you call, tell her your level. She will plug you into the draw. You will play 20 minute mini doubles matches and the winner moves up the draw, losers move down. The cost is $7 on Sundays and $8 on Fridays. I encourage people to try to attend these, which is very good for your game. These weekly events last about 2 hours, and run Friday's & Sunday's.

These events attract everything from the low intermediate players to the very advanced players. In order to attend, you should be able to hit at least a little, serve at least 5 out of 10 balls into the service box and keep score. For more info please call the numbers below.

The registration deadlines for K-Swiss, T2Tennis, Visionary Tennis, and Peach Tennis are fast approaching. Are you ready to play? If you are a new player or just coming back from a long retirement, here is a small list of equipment that you will need to make your tennis experience
enjoyable

CHOOSING A TENNIS RACQUET


The average price for a new tennis racquet is about $180. However, all manufacturers have a beginners racquet at $100. And if appropriate, there are discontinued racquets as low as $70. Racquets are made to help the player with power or control, depending on your skill level and athletic abilities. Strings will add an additional $4 - $20.

WEARING THE RIGHT TENNIS SHOES

The two main differences in tennis shoes and cross trainers are the level of lateral support and the shank system on the bottom of the shoe to stabilize the foot on flat services. All tennis shoes have some level of both. The high stability shoes tend to be all leather and slightly heavier. The lightweight shoes have a minimum level of support, but have the added benefit of being ventilated to cool the foot. Shoes can range from $40 - $110, with the average price around $80.

PICKING THE RIGHT TENNIS CLOTHING

Sure, you can wear that old holey cotton t-shirt and sweatpants. But, there is clothing that will help make your playing more enjoyable. Shirts are made with wicking fibers that pull the moisture away from the skin and release that moisture quicker to keep you cooler and drier. All tennis shorts have deeper pockets to hold the tennis balls. Skirts generally have tennis panties under them to hold tennis balls as well. Socks made for tennis have extra padding on the soles and are made with similar wicking fibers. Wear what you have for free, or buy a new outfit for under $75.

TENNIS BALLS

You can buy $1.99 cans of balls at the grocery store or the major sporting goods chains. But, those balls are made with rubber with fillers (sand, sawdust, and air pockets). They are acceptable balls for casual hitting, but will not last as long during competitive play. The $2.99 balls that are for sale at I PLAY TENNIS, are made with a solid rubber, air filled core. They will bounce longer and are made with a more durable felt. Most players use a new can for one or two matches. So, make it a New Year's Resolution to get on the courts. Whether it is to begin a new sport, or pick back up an old one, I PLAY TENNIS is your one shop stop in town for your tennis needs.
