The past month has been a whirlwind of weather and other activity and I wanted to pass on some recent news.
The USRSA World Conference was held at USTA National Campus, however in the brand new USPTA National Headquarters! What a perfect building! Several session leaders from around the world presented terrific sessions on topics necessary for racquet technicians. I presented a session on “Customization.”
Being near the USTA Campus was perfect for grabbing a fabulous and quick lunch. Try the fresh pasta the next time you are there!
This month the World Headquarters welcomed Ron Rocchi, the Advanced Innovation Manager at Wilson, and Eric Ferrazzi, Stringing Machine and Tour Stringing Manager for Babolat, France. These guys are the pinnacle of the field, and I am always glad to have them here.
The new Babolat Racquet Station is in and being used and evaluated. This is one of the most significant “electronic” upgrades you can imagine!
Some new and essentially “secret” racquets are in and being reviewed. The non-secret ones will be in around the 8th of November!
