Scott Dunlop: Juump in San Diego

Really happy to say that we have begun to add courts to the San Diego area and we are contacting leaders of organisations and coaches there to introduce Juump to the tennis community. As tennis players, many of us know players in other places or travel to play.  If  you know anyone in metro San Diego who would be interested in learning about Juump, please tell them and consider using the Juump invite buttton to ask them to become a member of our community.

We will be introducing Juump to some of the major metroplitan areas throughout North America on a continuing basis. What areas do you think would be best to go to first? Do you have any ideas on how we can let people know about Juump and its interest in helping tennis players find each other and play more on the courts in their neighborhood?

A New Reality By Nicolas Pereira

This past week in the World Team Tennis ‘Bubble” I have seen the efforts to keep everyone safe while carrying on a team competition with around 60/70 players and coaches onsite. Counting organizers, officials, media, and support personnel are around 150 people trying hard to make this happen. I am very impressed by how the strict protocol has been handled and how everyone is invested in making this event a success, but The Open is a completely different scale of details.

ONcourt Interviews NGTL Co-Founder Yves Boulais

It does not matter that you get your rating playing locally or that you had spent an insidious amount of money playing the ITF junior tour tournaments. Your rating is your level of play (you get no bonus for playing more or playing far away). This allows us to break free of the ITF competitive structure potentially saving us time, money, and headache. We see this as a great opportunity to improve the logistic of our sport.
