Tennis in the Streets

Tennis in the Streets | Boulder Green StreetsIf you live in Boulder Colorado you must be aware of Boulder Green Streets. Green Streets is a non profit organization that promotes outdoor activities in our, usually car-filled, streets.  For the past 5 years Green Streets has hosted a Ciclovia event. Designated streets around Boulder will be closed to traffic and used instead for the purpose of encouraging community centered events.  In short, it’s good family fun, and you shouldn’t miss it. This year Gonzo Tennis is proud to take part! We will be using the street as a tennis court! That’s pretty neat, right!?  Here’s how you can find us:

USTA Junior Development Skill Cards

USTA Junior Development Skill Cards

We like to post the USTA skill cards that come every few months in the USTA Junior membership magazine.   It’s a good idea to save the cards if you have a kid with a Junior USTA membership because they’re great to come back to on a rainy day or to carry with you to use while waiting for a court.  Read them, learn them, practice them.  They may seem simple, but they’re all great little exercises.  Remember, you don’t need fancy drills to become a great player!  Oh, and while you’re at it, if you don’t have one already, get a USTA membership for yourself and/or your kids.  It’s worth it.
