Get ready for the next tennis season now

Whether you ended the spring ALTA (or USTA) season on a high note or not, this isn't the time to rest on your laurels celebrating or to put your tennis bag away in disgust. Now is the time to get that racquet restrung and/or probably to buy some new shoes. It's important to play a few times with a freshly strung racquet before the next season is underway and you find yourself having to play with 'slick' or 'too tight' strings in your first match of the season; the same goes for that new pair of shoes, especially if you're changing brands or types.

Additionally, if you've been wanting to work on a part of your game, perhaps that let you down last season, whether it was a stroke or your fitness, now is the best time to get some extra practice sessions in (with a coach?), unless you want to continue to struggle during the upcoming summer season. Even though this is a busy time of year for parents, with end of the school year activities (graduations, vacation planning etc.), attend as many of your team's practices as possible so that you can "hit the ground running" in June.
