It’s no secret around here, us playtesters are a competitive bunch! We have the ability to turn the most mundane thing into a competition. So with that being said, we have started our Doubles League for the end of 2015.
Here’s a quick run down of the competition. We have 5 teams and each team will play each other twice (8 game pro-sets) and then we will play out a tournament. Each week, one team will have a “bye” and will be in charge of showing you guys a doubles drill they like to practice to key in on some doubles skills.
We are streaming the matches live on www.playsight.com each week. You can click on live streaming, or check into our social media pages and find the link to directly stream the matches on YouTube. We will be playing every Thursday at 11am PST and 12:30pm PST.
This week, Brittany and I take on Troy and Sebastian at 11am, while the defending champs, Andy and Spencer will play Mark Boone and Granville. Chris and Marco have a BYE this week and will be sharing some of their doubles insights with you guys!
Enjoy and play with heart,
Adidas continues their celebration of the 15 year anniversary of the release of the first Barricade with the fourth installment in their Limited Edition 2015 Wall Pack collection. This version pays tribute to the Great Wall of China as the ATP and WTA tours head to Asia to close out the year.
Weaving through China’s vast topography and spanning over 20,000 kilometers long, the Great Wall stands as a symbol of pride and structure of protection. According to adidas’ footwear designers, they wanted to look beyond the watchtowers and take inspiration from the revered bamboo that surrounds the wall. The deep green color represents the lush countryside while the graphical elements on the upper are designed to reflect the strength and perseverance of bamboo shoots. Lastly, the lucky Chinese color of red is used throughout the shoe.
As for the shoe itself, the new Barricade 2015 could very well be the best one yet. A shoe line that’s normally been synonymous with long break-in periods and stiff materials, this latest version is ready to go right out of the box and is the softest, most comfortable Barricade of recent memory. While still possessing the stability and durability we’ve come to expect from the line, the 2015 version takes it to a whole new level when it comes to out of the box comfort and flexibility.
