PLAYER TESTIMONIALS REGARDING TOM AVERY’S TEACHING METHODS

“The DVD’s that I ordered are excellent. The main reason I like them is that they are so thorough. For example, they tell me all the reasons why I hit my backhand or forehand into the net and why I hit them long. I also like the serving technique that you teach. It is very fluid and is all in one motion. I used to think a lot about a high toss, but I learned from your instruction that a high toss isn’t necessary. I’ve also learned so many different new strategies for playing doubles. I’m well on my way to becoming a much better tennis player, thanks to your DVD’s. Lastly, I’ve added so many new shots to my repertoire.

I will continue to tell my tennis buddies about your DVD’s and what a great impact they have on improving one’s game.

Thanks for continually sending me “Tom Avery’s Tennis News”. I really look forward to receiving them. I will also consider buying a new racquet from you in the future.”

“My very first viewing of Tom’s video helped me quickly pinpoint and correct fundamental flaws in my game that literally dozens of other videos and lessons didn’t, including several weekends at several well known academies. I only wish I knew about Tom’s tapes when I started playing tennis four years ago. It would have saved me a lot of time, money, and defeats. If you buy any instructional videos, buy these.”
Dr. Dan Ward, Crystal River, Florida

Tom Avery tennis videos” unravels the mystery of a consistent swing.”

“This instructional tape is a winner. I’ve looked at three others recently and still could not grasp the forehand and backhand, particularly. After five minutes into the tape, it became crystal clear what I had to do to become more consistent. Its the best! I KNOW you will like it. I’m a 68 year old neophyte learning the game. My 2 lessons with a pro were fruitless. Enjoy!”

” I recently attended Tom Avery Tennis Academy in Naples, Florida and got just what I wanted. He gave me quality personal attention so that I improved my game. I also feel his second Video Tape on singles and double’s strategies is a must for those who want to win. Using his tapes and the desire to play tennis will make your trip to Tom’s academy very worth while! Finally tennis help that works.

I recommend this program to those who want to play tennis at the next level.”
Sincerely,

The tennis videos are “Great for learning how to correct your mistakes.”

“These tennis videos help you understand what you can do to improve your strokes, correct your mistakes and hit consistently. It covers various hand/grip positions, body position, forehand and backhand ground strokes, the service toss and provides helpful, easy to remember ideas for correcting your mistakes.
Excellent visuals, good close ups, easy to watch and learn from. Tom does an excellent job in explaining what you may be doing wrong depending on where the ball ends up , why that happens and what to do to correct the problem. I’ve taken lessons and watched this tape and I feel I can refer to what I learned on this tape more so then the lessons I’ve had.
If your game has fallen off and your missing your shots and need to get back to the basics and understand what you are doing wrong, buy this tape. You won’t be disappointed.”

“This tennis video gives definite, concrete examples on how to improve your game. It addresses your grip, back swing, serves, forehands, backhands, drills… My serves were constantly in the net.

“I’m happy to recommend Consistent Tennis Wins as the “most important” technique of using the proper grip. It has helped me be much more consistent. All of my many years of playing tennis, I only made very small adjustments with changing my grip from forehand to backhand. Now I try to change on every ground stroke. Thank you so much for helping me and my daughter.”
Lanny Daise, St. Joseph, MO

“The Tom Avery videos sell extremely well. Customers love that each tape is very specific to their needs. I would strongly recommend them as an item to add to your tennis store.”

“The M3 Power is a breath of fresh air. So many of today’s modern rackets are becoming lighter and less powerful. The M3 Power has kept what has proven to work so well in the hands of the most critical customers, the playing pros. As advertising dollars are spent to attract more recreational players most of today’s rackets miss the target of what’s important, racket head speed and spin of the ball. With a 16×19 string pattern this optimizes spin compared to 18-20 designs, the balance and overall weight is recognized only by those who really know the game. I think Tom Avery hit this one out of the park!”
Peter Prinos, Foxboro, Massachusetts, NTRP Rating 6.0, M3 Power Player
In 2005 Peter ranked #1 in the Men’s 45′s USTA New England Section and is
currently at #1 for 2006.


“I’ve tried many racquets including most of the major brands and a few of the others and I think the Avery is the best one all around. I’ve enjoyed it from the first time I hit with it, I’m very happy with it. Right now I’m between a 3.5-4.0, coming back from shoulder surgery. It’s going very well and I think I’m finally getting back up there.”
Nancy Garrigan, Jensen Beach, FL AVERY M3 Control Player


“It’s heavier than the other ones I used to use but, I have more control over where the ball goes and I can get it in with less effort.”
Nicole Martinez, AVERY M3 Control Player
Gulf Coast High School Team, Naples,FL


“Heavier racquets are more comfortable to use and easier on the body. I chose the M3 because it’s greater weight acts as a shock absorber, lessening the stress on my wrist, arm and elbow. I also have found that the heavier racquets reduce torque. Both advantages improve ball control. The headlight balance made the M3 very maneuverable and I did not sustain any loss of racquet head speed. I fully endorse the M3 racquet, when playing I cannot tell where my hand ends and the racquet begins.”
