Tennis Blog Intro

I am an experienced USPTR certified tennis instructor based in Marina del Rey, California.  Welcome to my blog.  I specialize in introducing children and adults to tennis using the QuickStart Tennis Format developed in Europe originally and brought to the U.S. in recent years to foster our dwindling tennis popularity.  It has worked!  The growth of tennis over the last eight years is nothing short of remarkable.  According to data released by the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association (SGMA), tennis is the fastest growing sport in America among individual traditional sports with an increase in participation of 43% from 2000 to 2008.  (see, tennisx.com and usta.org)I hope that you will become one of the “cool kids” who are taking up this remarkable game.  I plan to post interesting stories and tips for the tennis enthusiast.  If you have any comments on professional or amateur tennis, please post them here.
