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!
Here at Tennis Warehouse we are anxiously counting down the days until the BNP Paribas tournament in Indian Wells! So to pass the time until then, we are keeping tabs on the ATP and WTA tournaments going on, but have also found ourselves fixated on the Winter Olympics around here! You may have heard the shriek from our office that we let out when we watched Shaun White’s two runs in the Half Pipe the other day! Not to mention, we have all been rocking some red, white and blue apparel and are learning about new athletes, not to mention we are intrigued by the winter sports and determined to try and perfect them ourselves.
So I asked some of my fellow playtesters 3 questions about this year’s Winter Olympics:
Favorite Winter Olympic Sport to watch?
Favorite Olympic Athlete?
If you could compete in any winter sport, what would it be?
Check out their answers and be sure to check out some of our patriotic gear!
