Meet the Team

Hey there! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Welcome to our online space for recreational tennis players! Weโ€™re a brand new concept for a tennis lifestyle website that includes everything recreational and league players need and want to be they can be!

We were drowning in the sea of websites and blogs that only offered tennis news, game analysis, and/or player stats when what we really wanted was a website with information recreational tennis players need to grow their game in a fun and healthy way, so we decided to create our own!

Our goal is to provide all of the essential tools (and those that are just plain fun!) to empower recreational tennis players of all ages and all levels and all around the world through our weekly educational, purposeful, and occasionally playful content, including:

instruction ๐ŸŽพย tennis humor and opinion articles ๐ŸŽพ tennis and fitness gear and apparel rollouts and reviews ๐ŸŽพtennis life hacks ๐ŸŽพtennis-specific fitness tips and workouts ๐ŸŽพ workout playlists ๐ŸŽพpre and post-match or workout recipes ๐ŸŽพ tennis league snack ideas w/recipes ๐ŸŽพ athlete health and wellness ๐ŸŽพ contests and giveaways… and SO much more!

Our growing roster of editors includes players from all across the US – high-level recreational players, tennis coaches, sports nutrition and fitness experts, and a former top WTA world-ranked tennis player!

Join our movement as we inspire health, strength, and confidence so you can be your best tennis self from the inside out!
