The Evolution of Tennis Technology

The next tennis Grand Slam will be here before you know it. While we wait let’s take a look back at the evolution of the sport and the equipment tennis players use to serve and volley their way to the top.

The first racquets, developed in 1874, were made from ash wood, a long way from the ultra-light graphite composite models being used today. In addition to the frames of racquets evolving for speed and weight, so too has the material used for strings. Multifilament and monofilament strings are some of the best suited for today’s game, due to the amount of power and accuracy needed at the highest levels. Even tennis balls have changed with the times: from wooden balls for indoor use only to multiple types designed for different conditions and surfaces today.

String tension, footwear, and even apparel have also changed over time. The next time you head out to the court, challenge yourself by using equipment of yesteryear and see for yourself how far tennis has come over the last century.

Do`s and Don`ts for Using Social Media in Ministry By Mike Stickler

It’s truly incredible how quickly social media have become part of everyone’s lives, at least in the U.S. More and more people join social media every day. Many ministry leaders have found a whole new way to minister to people through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube, Vimeo, Google+ and Instagram.

Ministry is all about relationships, and social media provide an effective way to begin and develop new relationships. A bonus: the cost to a ministry is negligible.

If you’re considering using social media in your ministry, here are some do’s and don’ts to help you get started.

First, a few don’ts:

  • Don’t be intimidated. The social media platforms are easy to use. That’s how Facebook got 1 billion users.
  • Don’t try to do it all. It could be overwhelming to try to use all the social media platforms at once. Start slow and easy. Twitter and Facebook are good places to begin.
  • Don’t use them like another pulpit. They’re called “social” media because they’re intended to help people connect. They’re built for engagement, so invite dialogue. Ask questions.
  • Don’t use them as a way to avoid people. It’s intended to build bridges, not walls.

Golf Etiquette for Junior Golfers

Part of the process of improving your golf game as a junior golfer is learning the customs and traditions of the sport. Etiquette out on the course, especially when playing tournaments, is an essential part of golf and is almost as old as the game itself. Understanding the dress code, how to behave on the course, and courtesies to show other golfers will help you develop a good relationship with golfers and a reputation for yourself.

Sweatpants and jeans are not allowed on most courses. In fact, it is most appropriate to wear a collared shirt (tucked in for men), along with dress or golf slacks or shorts. Be sure to refrain from running, since it is distracting to other players, and do not yell unless you are yelling “fore” to warn of an errant shot. In an effort to keep up a good pace of play, put a limit on time between club selection and shot, as well as searching for lost balls.
