Close-Ups Camera Angles

The unique first-person experience makes TopCourt so different and special. It is unlike any TV camera angle. You literally feel like you're so close on the court that you might get hit by the shots.

 I saw several times when the cameramen did get hit during one of their film operations for special behind-the-scenes peeks in March (Miami) and October (Indian Wells). The players swing full speed at the rovers and multiple body cameras that are live filming footage on the actual playing surface. The realistic perspectives are unmatched.

Overhead drone footage, courtside camera angles, and personalized commentary from the pro speaking directly to you at home. You feel as if you're the only student taking the private lesson. TopCourt offers the feeling of a personal conversation

Pro players are gathered together, then filmed while being mic'd up for one reason - to show you their inner game and key life experiences that shaped them into who they are today. Viewers are offered the perspective of a "fly on the wall," - allowing home viewers to witness those rare moments.

Each tennis player/coach presents you with unique skills and training regimens. The campus of TopCourt is very diverse and cross-generational.

The edits are well done with many enhanced cues (such as the mini-court icon at the bottom revealing where the player and each ball bounce are placed).

You get the benefit of all their combined years of experience on tour, which distills differently with each pro's own style and humor in their teaching role. Front and center for every moment.

Free Pickleball Lessons are now included.

For 2023, it now includes free lessons for pickleball too. Featuring teachers like World #1 Ben Johns and #3 Jessie Irvine. Think of this as the new 2-for-1 racket sports library (more tennis and pickleball videos are coming).

So you can share with family members who want to try Pickle, or can't play active singles - like elderly parents. It's ok; we won't tell anyone if you watch along too!

Seriously, Pickleball!?

For my tennis students transitioning or recovering from tennis, using pickleball as a fun "mini-tennis" alternative to play with kids or seniors is more fun than I originally expected. I've tried indoors and outdoors with earplugs and without (just kidding!).

As a USPTA coach, I still play 4x tennis a week. But now, I save pickle for the "social" days - or whenever I host a wide mix of ages and skills. Just don't get too competitive about it so that everyone can enjoy the fun. Try it with food or drinks while relaxed with no pressure to ace someone!

Perfect Practice by Pros

"Amateurs practice until they get it right.
Pros practice until they can't get it wrong."

Tennis is their livelihood. You witness the skills and trade secrets of their craft. Each player has invested years of their life in mastering their best shots.

If each pro could only share "one kick" with the World, what would that be?

Learn the signature shot that each teacher will be best remembered.

3 reasons why fans go attend pro sports events

When attending Tennis Majors like the US Open, I value these 3 experiences above all else:

1) Matches - Watching the Big 5th set Grand Slam match live on the center court.
2) Practices - Seeing the Tennis Pros prepare with their team from the courtside.
3) Emotions - Real human joy. Sharing the thrill of victory with thousands.

Spector sports have been fundamentally changed. We missed all those special moments of exhibition genius and unscripted, off-camera candid insights outside the stadium.

TopCourt allows touring pros to share their favorite tennis drills and retell treasured moments.

Box Office VS Online - Smart Tickets

Tickets are available for sale at the box office, but you will need to download the AXS ticket app.

Fans may wait for the player draws to come out first to determine which of the 3 stadium tickets (or grounds passes) to buy.

Invest in the all-access Stadium 1 Ticket only if there's a match you need to see (it will be $25+ more). Otherwise, just get a grounds pass and roam around. There's much more to see outside than inside.

Best to plan out your day with printable draws for planning to see your favorite player (like Carlos Alcaraz) at either the day or night session. Digital tickets are a lot safer and easier to use. Losing a paper ticket happens much more often than you think.

Hope you can make it to this "5th Slam" event and visit Palm Springs. It is definitely worth the experience for any tennis fans in the USA for a short vacation in California. Welcome back!!

As a huge Rafa fan for over a decade, I decided to book a pit stop to Mallorca between my trip to the Barcelona Open and the Madrid Open via Air Europa.

Several top pros had the same idea: stopping in Manacor to do some clay-court training before the French Open!

I visited Uncle Toni, Carlos, and the Nadal Academy Coaching Team. My room was just down the hall from Naomi Osaka's team. She was very shy and tried to avoid all attention from fans.

Fresh meals and facilities included many fitness classes available to attend almost all day hours.

The adult tennis program also had access to hard courts. The gym, pool, and spa sauna are of the highest quality.The clay courts are just a short walk away
, with pro and junior programs half of the academy. Now there are even indoor clay courts!

For 3 days, I felt so lucky to train and play tennis next to the now 22-time grand slam champion.

Joining the Adult Tennis players,  you get to live and breathe tennis 24/7 or even play in a tennis tournament:

I could train, eat, sleep, and watch and play tennis right next to the top ATP and WTA pros like 
Naomi Osaka and Rafael Nadal!

Visiting Rafa's Hometown and Mallorca Sights around the Island

The scenic countryside, with its windmills and small traffic circles, is very peaceful. Most tiny cars, including Rafa's old Kia, are miniature in size yet very nimble. Speed limits top out around 100kmph - yet you can go from coast to coast in a little over an hour. I recommend renting a car but be prepared that it will likely be a manual transmission.

NY Times Article - 36 hours in Mallorca

Small packs of bicycle riders will dot the small country roads early in the morning, riding in tandem. The local villagers are very friendly and helpful in sharing their traditions and culture. I made a lot of friends among the other Adult tennis program attendees.

I encourage all my tennis readers to visit Spain for the authentic Tennis Experience.

In 2022, I visited the San Diego camp, and my friend's son visited the DC/Baltimore camp. The Junior program is both excellent and high-intensity. Several local kids I interviewed loved it and said you get much more individualized attention and many balls to drill.

Kids at the camp say they love the small class size and lots of repetition - "Coach Nico is the best".

Most camps were sold out within a few weeks. The adults camp was more for 3.0-4.0s and mostly older adults as shown in the photo above, during warmups in the early afternoon.

But this year it will be held 8-10AM, so I hope better players will sign up and report back on camp conditions for 2023.
