Wrong Planet?

Yesterday a good friend was in the World Headquarters, and as usual, our discussion turned to player training, the necessity, and the over-training of players, mainly juniors!

This training may include the wrong equipment setup, unnecessarily stiff strings, and sometimes stiff, light racquets.  This may cause injuries at every level of player from recreational to professional!

My friend, by the way, is a Collegiate All-American, a professional player, and a coach! 

After we discussed how to change this behavior, she said something quite interesting;

“John, you are on a different planet!”

Yikes!

So two things can happen;

  1.  Abandon my planet
  2.  Invite you to join our planet!

We have chosen number 2!

  • to invite you to our¬†planet!
  • ¬†

¬†There will be no need for interplanetary travel right now, but we do need to pick a name for our planet, so, the person presenting the best name will be the Mayor of our planet (your name here)…for a while.

We hope you will join us and make our planet a place we can all go to discover, learn, share, and understand as much as we can about tennis equipment, customization, stringing, and “best practices”.

Please use the “Leave Comment” tab below to submit your name for our new planet!

Our mission is to keep players playing!

 

 

 

 

Celebrity Visitors!

The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest, LLC was happy to welcome Randy St. Pierre and Henry Hamels for a visit!

Randy is a member of the Dunlop Stringing Team and is from the UK and Henry is the principal of String MD in Florida! ¬†Randy has been stringing racquets for quite a while and is always a source of good information…and he bought lunch!

Randy & Henry

Randy lives in a beautiful part of England so we are all invited to his house when the weather is better…is that right Randy?

Randy remembers stringing for a young player named Emma at a tournament in Nottingham when young Emma was in the 300’s ¬†world wide! ¬†Look at her now! ¬†Was it Randy or something else? ¬†I wonder!

Anyway it was great fun having these guys here and they are welcome anytime as are all of you reading this!

 

World Headquarters Update

The World Headquarters of Racquet Quest is very happy to present the latest addition to our headquarters!

My daughter and her family that live in Columbus presented me with the iconic Columbus, Indiana “C” bike rack recently! ¬†This bike rack is something I have wanted for a while!

In case you don’t know, Columbus, Indiana is well known for the many architectural buildings and pieces by many very famous people!

The bike was donated by Davids Cycle World and painted by me!  A very close inspection of the paint job should be avoided!

Anyway, we are very happy to have this addition to the World Headquarters!

Thank you!

Tis The Season!

We are a family with a multiplicity of religious beliefs, including Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations!

So, I just say “I Love You” to all of my family!

This same sentiment is true for all of our friends, clients, customers, and suppliers!

How ever you celebrate this season, these few words go a long way toward making this time of year very special!

It is raining today and it felt like a good time to talk about “string bed stiffness”…so let’s go!

This quick video will make a plea to you tennis players to demand more from your racquet technician so you are getting the most from your equipment.

Thank you for watching!
