The Boston Tennis Tour brings together the top talent in the Boston area for highly competitive and exciting team-formatted matches. The 2016 season runs from June to August at various Boston area clubs.
The tour is a highly competitive tennis league where top Boston area players (many former professional) will compete in a semi-professional environment for prize money, creating a fun and competitive team environment for players and fans alike.
Most of us have hit and picked up a ton of tennis balls! Some more than others! You know who you are…Slow, coach talking, water breaking, handful of ball picker uppers! Oh and I can’t forget the Juniors who shoot balls like Steph Curry or so they think so…they all do the 5 pushups for missed shots! It happens at every Academy in the world unless you have Coach’s who are guilty of being ‘No Fun!’
Well here is a video of how tennis balls are made! A quick 3 and a 1/2 minutes of your life so you know where they come from! Balls up in 2 minutes though!
Now go hit some serves!
