  • How to go from being an average to competitive table tennis player

    It is amazing how similar tennis and table tennis are. Just reading through your article I could apply much of it, such as the spins and how to handle shots, to tennis. You may find the same going through the tennis guides http://www.tennisnation.com/ I enjoyed the read. Keep up the good work. Cheers, Randy

  • How to Hit Basic Groundstrokes in Tennis

    Awesome job with the tutorial. On TV we see the pros hitting forehands from different stances. When starting out it is a good idea to learn the neutral stance forehand http://www.tennisnation.com/lessons-classes/how-to-hit-a-tennis-neutral-stance-forehand/ so that you can develop sound fundamentals when striking through the ball and transferring your body weight forward. Keep up the good work. Cheers, Randy

There are many pro tips listed here and you can find additional detail at http://www.tennisnation.com/lessons-classes/tennis-serve-technique-fundamentals-guide/ to improve your serve. Keep up the good work. Cheers, Randy

    I love the creativity. One thing that may help the big hitters is selecting the proper grips for each tennis stroke so you give yourself a solid foundation to develop consistency and confidence. Check out the guide http://www.tennisnation.com/lessons-classes/ultimate-tennis-grip-system-guide/ and if it doesn't work then upgrade to 4 courts :). Cheers, Randy
