Hytail Hat by AD Active Wear
(408) 776-8989

Created by women for women, the Hytail Hat is a must-have for any tennis enthusiast this holiday season.

Eliminating the horrible feeling of sticky sweaty hair on your neck, this one-of-a-kind hat allows women to wear their hair comfortably in a high ponytail (with or without a hair tie), all while looking sleek and stylish.

Tess Rogers, a successful executive and engineering recruiter, birthed the idea while on vacation. Being an outdoor lover, she was frustrated that there were no hats that would allow her to comfortably wear her hair in a ponytail with sunglasses. That is when the idea for Hytail was created.

After years of perfecting the design, she realized that all women and girls would benefit from the stylish hat. The flexible two-inch wide band in the back perfectly lifts and holds hair to ensure it will not be a distraction during any match.

The release of the Athletic Hytail makes for an even more enjoyable experience. The Athletic version combines the classic, comfortable Hytail design, with sporty new features like its breathable moisture wicking material, which will help to regulate sweat and keep you cool and comfortable throughout your game. It has been spotted on tennis pro and former Wimbledon and U.S. Open Doubles Champion Vania King.

Whether you are on the court, on the run, or even just relaxing in the sun, Hytail will be your favorite addition to your wardrobe this holiday season. Available in a variety of colors and sizes there is a perfect fit for every athletic woman.

The Athletic Hytail retails at $24.99 and can be purchased online at ADActiveWear.com.

Give the gift of an ACE! Did you know that in just 15 swings of ServeMaster, a beginner tennis player can learn to serve with the same fluid motion as a pro? Free online videos show you how to improve your serve and overhead strokes by using ServeMaster. It can be used to for forehand and backhand drills too. It's like having a tennis coach in your bag!

How it works: Follow the easy steps included in the package, watch ServeMaster videos online or get free tips e-mailed to you. With the Continental Grip (markings on the handle will get you in position), move slowly through your entire service motion. Because it is completely flexible, flaws such as hitches, erratic rhythm, inconsistent timing and poor technique will cause ServeMaster to “flop,” stop and bump you. With practice, you'll have a rhythmic and flowing service motion.

The ServeMaster is available in three sizes for players of all ages and abilities. Wholesale academy packages for teaching pros and group lessons are available.

To find the size ServeMaster that’s right for you, visit TheTotalServe.com. New Junior and LTE versions of ServeMaster are now available in orange!


Tennis Elbow Grease
(800) 636-4130

Do you have tennis elbow (scientifically referred to as epicondylitis)? Do you know anyone with tennis elbow? Now there is finally some relief for this debilitating problem. Introduced at the New York Tennis Expo at the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., Tennis Elbow Grease products are now available in retail stores across the country and online at EliminateTennisElbow.com.

Tennis Elbow Grease (TEG) Pain Relief Cream is formulated as a topical analgesic to address the symptoms of tennis elbow, as well as to aid in healing the long-term underlying problems of arm and elbow pain. Utilizing a unique delivery system, the active ingredients in the TEG formula are distributed through the sub-dermal layers of the skin, where they can penetrate the affected muscles, tendons and skeletal areas. Essentially, the active ingredients in TEG target those areas in need of relief, ultimately reducing inflammation and pain.

Unlike many other topical analgesics currently on the market, TEG incorporates a variety of ingredients that have been successfully proven to minimize or eliminate muscle, tendon and nerve pain. These include Glucosamine, MSM, Capsaicin, Curcumin, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E, R-Alpha Lipoic Acid, Camphor, Menthol, Arnica and DMSO (to aid delivery and speed the healing process). Consequently, TEG eliminates the need to buy and use multiple, less effective products. It offers efficacy, convenience and cost savings.

In addition to a pain relief cream, Tennis Elbow Grease now offers a natural gut string that is high performing and extremely arm friendly, as well as an elbow brace with an insertable ice and heat gel pack for post-match maintenance.

Give Tennis Elbow Grease products a try, or buy it for someone who is hoping to return to the tennis court sooner rather than later. Go to EliminateTennisElbow.com for more information and to shop now. Use promo code "LITM" to receive 15 percent off your purchase!
