New York Tennis Magazine has compiled a list of some top of the tennis gifts for the upcoming holiday season: 





At AceSpace, we know that time is of the essence. Whether you’re scheduling tennis lessons a month in advance, or organizing an impromptu doubles match, you want the process to be quick. After all, if you can book a restaurant, a car, a hotel with just a few clicks—why not a tennis court? 

Founded in 2018, AceSpace is the premier court-booking platform in New York. The app easily locates available tennis courts in your area, eliminating the hassle of Web searches and phone calls. Whatever price, surface or time slot you prefer, AceSpace ensures you get the court you want, every time.

Thanks to its staff of tennis enthusiasts, AceSpace was designed with both players and facilities in mind. We help tennis centers manage their bookings automatically, working as a stand-alone system or in tandem with older technology. We work directly with facility managers, bridging the gap between manual bookings and digitally-oriented players.

Now live at Park Avenue Tennis Facility and Tiger Tennis Academy, our gift to you is a stress-free tennis schedule. Like the best tennis players, AceSpace is fast and reliable, and no matter how busy your life gets, AceSpace is ready to steer you towards the nearest clay, grass or hard surface.

If you’re ready to #ClaimYourCourt, visit AceSpaceCourts.com to create your account now.

Follow AceSpace on Facebook for updates, and we’ll see you on the court!

Do you know tennis rules?

You serve. As your opponent hits a winning return, a string breaks on his racket. He retrieves a second racket from his bag. Is this a let? Point? First serve? 

a) Let, first serve

b) Your point

c) His point.

Your doubles partner has a habit to call your serves in or out during practices. During a tournament game, he’s still calling your serves out. Can he call your serves out in a USTA match?

a) Yes

b) No


Answer 1: His point. The point was played in good faith. He did not delay the game because his racket was in his bag on the court. If you had returned the ball, he could continue playing with a broken string. Code 45.

Answer 2: No. Your partner should not be calling your first serves out. The receiver may return a long or wide serve if they didn’t see it clearly. They would be giving you the benefit of the doubt. Code 26

Servemaster: Get a Better Serve FAST 




John S. says: “My buddy told me about Servemaster and he says it is crazy effective. He says his serve got 25 percent better after using it for about one week. He swore by it, so I got one too. He was right! I got better so quickly and I wish I hadn’t wasted so much time practicing without knowing what I was doing.” 

Top professionals, academies and players around the world are endorsing and using Servemaster for fast serve improvement.

Servemaster goes to the top of the “Best Gift to Receive” list for every tennis player, no matter what age, level or ability.

Why does it work? Players get to experience what a service motion should feel like and that accelerates learning. Practice serve technique at home, work or on the court without hitting a ball then take it to your racket on the court. You’ll be amazed at the results.

You don’t understand what Servemaster is or what it can do for you? Go to TheTotalServe.com and watch instructional videos or sign up for FREE videos on that site.

We promise it will be worth your time …

We also have wholesale pricing for pro shops, teaching professionals, academies and schools. All you need to do is e-mail Lisa Dodson at Lisa@TheTotalServe.com for more information.
