START YOUR PREHAB NOW!
TCSP and Conscious Body Pilates want you to start your 2016-17 season off right by doing your Prehab!
CBP will be offering 30-minute Assessments for TCSP members that will entail a posture evaluation and help identify areas of strength and weakness related to tennis. Understanding the differences of little muscles vs big muscles and how to stabilize your joints will help maintain a healthy tennis body for the long-term.
If you suffer from any of the following, you might consider having an evaluation done to help you find a path to overcome your issues:
Evaluations will be available on Wednesdays from 9 am – 12 pm starting September 6th.
Prehab Evaluations are $40 but CBP is running a $10 off Special for the month of September on all Prehab Evaluations.
To book your Prehab Evaluation, prepayment is required and appointments can be made by emailing Heather Scearce at email@example.com.

PRO SHOP NEWS
September is around the corner and the Fall season is upon us. This is the time to review your equipment status after a long, hard summer of playing on your equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How often should I restring my racket? – Strings are expected to perform at a certain level for about 3 months. If you play a minimum of once a week, you should look to have your racket restrung as your original tension will change with repeated use over time.
How often should I replace my grip? – Grips should be the one item you replace on a very frequent schedule. Your original grip can last a long time if you use Overgrips on a regular basis. Overgrips can be replaced anywhere from once a week to once a month if you play consistently. Replacement grips can be replaced more frequently as well but you’ll get better bang for your buck using an Overgrip.
Should I have more than one racket? – If you compete in a league or in tournament play, it is expected that you would have a back up racquet that is exactly the same as the one that you have on the court. Alternating which frame you use each time keeps the tension and condition of each frame similar. It’s nice to know that if your grip gets slippery or you break a string, you have the alternate frame in your bag. Your teammates love it when you are prepared to increase your chance of winning.
Should I have more than one pair of shoes? – Tennis shoes can get moist from perspiration and benefit from drying out for 24 hours. Having a second pair of shoes for those that play on a daily basis is highly recommended. Similar to strings, if you are playing at least once a week, you should look to replace your shoes every 3-4 months for the benefit of your feet.
New Product Spotlight
The new Wilson Pro Staff line in coming out September 1. Roger Federer played a big part in designing the new frames. The cosmetics and design of this new frame is totally different. Watch for this new frame at the US Open and at the club’s store. Look for the sale special being offered in September on the previous versions of the Pro Staffs. These frames will not be made again and we are clearing out those that are in the store to make room for the new line.
