  • ABOUT COACH ABDUL

    Coach Abdul's passion for teaching tennis has no boundaries. Whether it be giving 4-year-old twins their first ever tennis lesson, warming up a 12 year-old’s serve before her first L4 tournament, assisting his Alma Mater North Carolina A&T State University to success as the Assistant Tennis Coach, or teaching a Wounded Warrior Army Veteran and his family the fundamentals of the sport. Coach Abdul sees no limit in developing knowledge and skill of the great game of tennis. These and countless other sports and tennis experiences over the past 30+ years have taken place in schools, parks, tennis clubs, day cares, community centers, college campuses, sports organizations and country clubs. Together, they have shaped Coach Abdul’s approach to teaching tennis and sports training, and have helped create great athletic connections throughout Montgomery County and surrounding Washington, DC Metro area...

  • A MESSAGE FROM THE COACH

  • RACQUET RE-STRINGING

    RESTRINGING FAQ Q: How often should I restring my racquet? A: The common rule of thumb is to restring as often per year as you play per week, but at least twice per year--once before the indoor season, and once before the outdoor season is also a good idea. Some types of string lose tension faster than others, heavy spin hitters wear strings out much faster than flat hitters, and some players seem quite happy to let the strings decide when to be replaced -- by breaking... Q: What gauge of tennis string is best? A: Thinner gauges offer more playability (often equated with "feel"). Thicker strings offer more durability. Most serious players who don't like to restring too often use 16 or 15 gauge. 17 and 18 gauge are for those who can afford string luxury or those who don't break strings. Each gauge has a light (L) variation that's a little thinner... Q: What's the best string tension to protect my arm? A: Lower string tensions (generally 40 to 55 lbs) prolong the contact between ball and strings, spreading the impact shock over a longer period of time and thus reducing stress on your arm. Higher string tensions (generally 60 lbs or higher) tends to give way to a more firm or stiff feel which can be tougher on the arm and elbow.
