Portable Tennis Partner
(813) 997-2377

The holiday season is fast approaching. What do you get your athlete, especially your tennis enthusiast who already has everything? Get them Portable Tennis Partner, the gift that keeps on giving, year-round. Never go without a tennis partner again, play in your garage, driveway, basement, or yard. Never let the rain, snow, heat, or wind keep you from doing something you enjoy; hitting tennis balls. Hitting 1,200 balls in 30 minutes promotes efficient strokes, while getting a great cardio workout, all in the comfort of the location of your choice. This one-of-a-kind backboard features fast, easy set-up and disassembly, requiring no tools in less than five minutes. It provides consistent bounces, with light, but sturdy construction. The Portable Tennis Partner is truly portable, weighing only 37 pounds while fully assembled, and can be moved easily from place to place.

You do not have to be a professional or a competitive player to use the Portable Tennis Partner. It can be used by players of any age or skill level. Players who have difficulty hitting the 5’ x 7’ hitting surface will quickly hone the skill required to keep a “rally” going (more so than a regular backboard).

The Portable Tennis Partner does not replace a coach or parent, but rather compliments them by providing a place to practice what you have been asked to work on before your next lesson.

"Not having a way to hit balls at home is like taking piano lessons and not having a piano at home to practice,” said Steve Smith. “Repetition is the mother of consistency.”

Order and get your Portable Tennis Partner before the rush. Feel free to contact the company with any questions. Happy hitting …

Tennis Elbow Grease

Info@EliminateTennisElbow.com ♦ 
Do you have or know someone 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. two years ago, 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. 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.


Tennis Hobo, A Derailed Memoir
www.tennishobo.com♦ Available at Amazon


“At last, a great tennis novel!”—Gary Glassman, Stony Brook University

John Gruberg has been mentioned on theTonight Show and in Playboy Magazine. 

Your favorite tennis book may have to step aside for this new novel by John Gruberg. The semi-autobiographical narrative offers high tennis adventure loaded with humor and witty insights to the game as two small-time tennis pros hit the road.

Meanwhile, the golden years of Borg/Connors/McEnroe and Evert/King/Navratilova haunt the background (unique tennis instruction tips are a bonus).

“There are tears in my eyes as I finish this book.”—Roger Kahn, USPTA

“Great tale!”—Peter Smith, Men’s Tennis Coach, University of Southern California

“Don’t miss it!”—Dick Gould, Stanford University

“A story that begs to be told.”—Sean Sloane, Past Director of Education, USTA

Arguably among the best tennis books, John Gruberg’s Tennis Hobo brings to mind 
A Handful of Summers by Gordon Forbes.
