SAT – signing off for the summer

Well, I’m going to be signing off for the summer as far as posting articles is concerned, but I hope you will push ahead with SAT. When doing your SAT prep during the summer, make good use of my archived articles, all 25 of them on this website. I don’t know where else you would find such an easy-to-read collection. You may find it useful to print one or two of them to review regularly, especially, if that particular area is where you are weak.

My SAT prep classes are on a much less regular basis during the summer, but if you take the initiative to contact me at ACE in Burlington, I will try to arrange something. Days and times will vary. I’ll say it again – the ball’s in your court!

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.
