Basically, certification is a process that gives recognition to tennis instructors that meet certain standards. It is a promise that the instructor will provide the quality services that he or she claims to offer.

Tennis instructors directly affect the lives of both children and adults. For this reason, the National Tennis Academy® has sought, since it’s organization in 1982, to protect the interests of this segment of the public by setting standards and training persons to become tennis instructors.

What Kind of String is Right for Your Game? Part III

HYBRIDS

When you use different strings in the Mains and Crosses it’s called a Hybrid String Job. This is how you super tune your performance. Do you want Durability and Control? Pick 17 ga. Kevlar mains and 16 ga. Multi, or Gut, crosses. Want more Spin, Durability and Power? Try a thin 18ga. Poly main and 16 or 17ga. crosses. Want Spin and Arm Friendly? Try a 17 ga. Nylon (Prince Syn. Gut) and 16 ga. Multi crosses (Gosen TecBio). String combinations (Hybrids) can match nearly every need closer than using only one string. You can even adjust tension between the two strings to further enhance the feel, control and power-pop. I typically go 6% to 12% less on the crosses depending on string choice and racquet design.


NATURAL GUT

Made from cow intestines, it’s the best at everything; more power, more control, more comfort. Bad durability; a hard hitter/top-spinner can break a string in a couple of hours. Half the tension loss of nylon, but major tension loss if it’s exposed to moisture. The most expensive string.
