We haven’t been posting in a while, but as a big come-back we need to inform you about two outstanding results that these guys have achieved lately:
Christopher Cortes Mohri who won the L1B RWTT October Championships at 18 years old
And this amazing article about Nitzan Ricklis that got beyond everyone’s expectations, earning the Northern California Mens Open Player of the Year title!
Well done guys! Wish you the best in the future competitions!
As promised, when big events take place, SVTA brings their players to attend them. Out of the amazing experience of seeing the tennis stars live, some of our players even got on the tennis court with them!
Who says that being good means only sweat and struggle? From time to time a little break helps everybody come back on the path to success. So what about a pool break and some burgers?
As advanced technology is utilized in practically all fields and industry, finally the tennis community has a product that will completely alter the way a player trains and studies the game of tennis. Sony has developed a lightweight, wearable product that will track, record, and collect data on virtually every aspect of a player’s stroke and game. Simply attach the Smart Tennis Sensor to the bottom of a tennis racquet, and you are ready to start analyzing your game in-depth. A few data that the Smart Tennis Sensor can detect and display (via an app), include:
- Number of shots hit
- Ball contact spot
- Swing type (i.e. forehand, backhand, volley, topspin, slice, etc.)
- Racquet head speed
- Ball speed and spin
Don’t just take our word for it though, learn more about the game-changing product in person! This Wednesday, July 29th at 11am, Silicon Valley Tennis will have a representative from Wilson who will be giving a presentation and demonstration of the Smart Tennis Sensor. Come join us and try out the new technology for yourself.
This week, Silicon Valley Tennis would like to turn the spotlight onto a couple of our High Performance students.
Yuu Ishikawa recently competed in the Girls 12s Clay Court Nationals, with a tremendous run. After a tough loss in the Round of 32, Yuu went on to win the northeast consolation, with a grueling 7-5, 6-4 win over the number 3 seed from Illinois. Yuu is currently 12 years old, and just this summer advanced from our Core Skills class to our High Performance class.
Last week, Aditya Goyal won his first tournament, competing in the Boy’s 18 Niru’s Tennis Academy Summer Junior Open Grand Prix. This was just the boost of confidence that Aditya needed, as he took out the number 1 seed in the semifinal before easily taking the win in the final round.
So when you see Yuu and Aditya returning to our practice courts this week, give them a high five and a pat on the back, for their stupendous efforts at these tournament events!
