Welcome Future Pod Pros

iPod tennis pros publishing platform is not for profit or commercial use.

Please note: For viewing any of the videos full screen, please go to the iTunes Music Store and click on "Podcasts" and enter "Tennis Pod Pro Videos" in the search field.

Do you have a favorite Tennis Drill, Game or Tip? Would you like to feature your favorite tennis video drill, tip or game on this site for free?

This site, along with its link to Apples iTunes podcast is where you can share your favorite Tennis Drill, Game or Tip via the internet. We would like to feature you and all you need to do to get your one to two-minute drill, game or tip published is to send it in.

What is Podcasting? Podcasting is a great new way of distributing video and audio automatically. These files can then be copied on to your iPod.

What is the cost? Free, however, you must download iTunes on to your computer for viewing video files on iTunes and the iPod. When you submit a podcast it is uploaded to iTunes and updated automatically.

If you do not download iTunes you may only view the Drills, Tips & Games off this site. These are Quicktime clips and in order to view these clips you must download Quicktime. This PC/Mac download is free:
www.apple.com/quicktime/download/

What is this concept? For the first time, certified professionals, college, high school coaches and park and recreation instructors can access drills, tips and games "On Demand." This idea was brought about by my concern for tennis teachers who may not have access to this kind of information.

Now, everyone can watch "Video Drills" in the palm of their hand. No more confusion with written or verbal lesson plans. This site is in its infancy, however, as it grows it will gain momentum and be a force of change in our profession. Same as you can personalize your library of music, you can now categorize all your video drills. This is the first website in the world to link "Video Drills" to the iTunes video library via the internet. With better informed teachers we will ultimately help "Grow the Game."

For your players; put your "strategies and tactics" or an inspirational word from Dr. James Loehr or Dr. Jack Groppel on your ipod and take it on the court. Train your students to be productive and view the clips during rest periods and when practicing on their own.

Podcasting meets the needs of the ever fast paced society we have created. Now, whether your waiting for your next appointment or sitting on a train, bus or plane, you can view downloads when and where you want. The newest iPod holds 60 gigabytes, about 150 hours of video. With adapters, it can be hooked up to a TV set for presentations; no DVD, VHS player or computer needed.

There are also additional benefits that may apply to your specific club, service or product.

1. More frequent participation from members and the target audience.
2. Increased internet visibility & traffic from the RSS, Blog and podcasting directories.
3. Visual Communication medium is more powerful that text or audio. This means better potential results for the ultimate goal of "Growing the Game of Tennis".
4. Improved level of perceived expertise from our profession.
5. Newer professionals can now "show " future employers their teaching skills.

Who would benefit from Podcasting? Anyone in the tennis teaching profession. Teaching Professionals, Speakers, Tennis Directors can now network with other professionals via the internet.

You give fantastic honest ideas here on this site. I just had a couple of questions. Recently got into this great game so I purchased some rackets instead of trying them out before I purchased them and they are not like my old ones I I was using before. I played my first match today with them, obviously not comfortable with them and I struggled to hit the the serve with a full swing, then I realized if I choose an abbreviated half swing, I could hit it and the serve was okay.

Should I keep the rackets? :(

Dear tennispodpro,

Thank you so much for sharing all the good stuff most teachers can't teach or don't want to teach for one reason or the other. you really helped changing my tennis experience from frustration to pure enjoyment.

I have so muh more self-confidence in my strokes and my swing - it now happens almost all by itself.

Thnx so much!!

This is absolutely wonderful!!! Thank you for putting this online :)

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it's nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same info elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.

What's up Lee?

Do you know where I can find a standardized physical tennis test chart?

Example.. 10-12yr old should do 30 push-ups in a minute. How many sit-ups in a minute?___etc
Run a mile in ...minutes?


Let me know.

Keep up the good work!!!!
