PGA TOUR Superstores Now Carry USPTA Instructional Tennis DVDs
Sept. 27, 2007 — The high-quality instructional DVDs produced by the United States Professional Tennis Association are now available at all Atlanta PGA TOUR Superstores, which carry golf and tennis equipment and supplies. The USPTA DVDs feature instruction and drills by top USPTA-certified tennis-teaching professionals, as well as interviews with them. These great educational resources will retail for just under $20.
Eleven USPTA instructional DVD titles are carried exclusively in Atlanta stores with plans to expand to stores in Florida, Texas and Arizona. A sampling of the titles includes: “The Modern Forehand” by Rick Macci, “Playing Successful Doubles — Playing Offensively” by Leslie Allen, “Meet the Topspins” by Brett Hobden, and “Footwork for the Open-Stance Forehand and Backhand” by David T. Porter, Ed. D.
No other tennis-teaching organization produces the volume and quality of instructional DVDs that the USPTA does. The contemporary content incorporates both modern and time-tested tennis techniques. To assure quality, each DVD goes through an intensive review process that includes evaluation by a USPTA Master Professional and two Pro 1 level USPTA tennis-teaching professionals. The DVDs, produced in-house by the USPTA’s own multimedia department, feature lessons by highly qualified USPTA instructors. The instruction is current and correct in order to guarantee a successful lesson.
“We are thrilled that PGA TOUR Superstores will be carrying a selection of USPTA instructional tennis DVDs,” said CEO Tim Heckler. “We see the PGA TOUR Superstores as a quality merchant, and they clearly recognize the value of the USPTA by carrying our top-notch instructional DVDs and hiring USPTA-certified professionals at their stores.”
PGA TOUR Superstores are owned and operated by Golf & Tennis Pro Shop Inc. Each store is dedicated to providing consumers with the best products, best services and best prices in an entertaining, interactive store environment. The Superstores are focused on game improvements in golf and tennis, as well as growing the games.

Certified professional tennis instructors, equipment and hitting nets make up the tennis section. The Superstores have a vast selection of golf and tennis equipment, clothing, and home furnishings.
