2009 Tennis Teachers Conference and US Open (09/15/09)
We had a table at the resource center in the USTA Tennis Teachers
Conference this year, it was a great opportunity to meet new coaches
and many coaches that are already on our site, which had only good
things to say about TennisLessons.com.

We'd like to thank all the coaches we met and a special thanks to Denny Schacter
founder of TennisPriorities.com for his help, and Joe Cockerham from the
USNTA for including TennisLessons.com in the USNTA newsletter.

We've also been to the US open for a few day & night sessions, and got to
some really great and exciting matches, you can check out photos from
the USTA TTC and the US Open in our photos page.

Successful Server Switch (08/22/09)
Our server has been experiencing unusually frequent downtime lately.
It seems that someone on our shared host has been overloading it.
Last night we moved to a different server, which already is noticeably
faster, and hopefully will have less downtime or overloading.
We always to try to serve you (students and coaches) better
and we hope you will enjoy a faster and better service.
