The only tennis podcast of its kind!

I first bumped into Ian’s tennis content on YouTube while learning how to play tennis about a year ago. I had recently taken the bold step of joining a tennis club without knowing how to play, let alone keep score. The first video I watched was a drill to get comfortable with the racket sweet spot and then I watched a few more. Very accessible especially for the new tennis player, with great chunks of concept in each video, which are not too long and not too short- they’re perfect.When I discovered the podcast while riding in my car months later, I was exposed to the more philosophical side of Ian, which is perfect for practicing your “mental” tennis between practice and matches. I’ve listened to about 50+ episodes and he never misses an opportunity to explore a new concept, rarely repeating himself on episode subjects (aside his great passion for learning from video of course!)I would definitely recommend this podcast to the beginning tennis player and I imagine that the intermediate and veterans would benefit from this too! Thanks for the great stuff Ian and please keep it coming!Keith T.

Highly recommend for players of all levels

I have been playing for 2-3 months so far, but supplementing my matches and lessons with Ian’s wisdom has really helped improve my game! I’ve been surprised by how much of tennis is mental. While Ian does do a good job covering techniques, I really enjoy the episodes that discuss strategies and mental toughness.

5 principles of singles podcast revolutionary

I’ve been playing tennis for 30+ years and never had such helpful instruction as what I found in the 5 Principles of Singles podcast. Within a week or so after I played three 4.0 league matches. In two, I destroyed my opponents applying these principles (think 3 of 4 sets were bagels). In the third, I played what was a superior player in every physical way and after a super match, I ultimately lost in a third set breaker. I would never have even been close without these tools to work with. Thanks Ian, for your dedication to the game and for sharing these revolutionary strategies!

Great Insights!

I listened to this podcast before a match. Implemented what I learned. Not only did I beat someone who beat me a couple of weeks ago, but I kept him at 2 games for the second set. Amazing! I’ll be catching up on the other episodes.

Ian,Thank you for the consistently wonderful content that you and you’re team produce for this podcast. I’m a relatively new listener and each episode that I’ve checked out has been very engaging and insightful. I’m really learning a lot more about the game in general and how I can apply various tips and insights to my own game. I look forward to every opportunity I have to listen to your show.Thanks!Scott

The best tennis podcast out there!

I've started to listen to ETP a month ago and I've now heard a lot of episodes. Actually I didn't think at all that I could learn so many new and interesting things about tennis. Please keep up the great work! I'm also telling friends and coaches about it. - If you wanna have a look on our experience just look up "TENNISMAGIC Quentin" on Insta.

Great Show, really worth the time.

Follow up review, still great tennis podcast. Thanks for the effort!Ian discusses a variety of tennis topics from technique to the mental game. Lots of good insight and encouragement for your game. I get such a value from listening I feel guilty for not giving him money! I guess he has an easy to find site where you can donate once you've reach my level of listening!Another follow up, thanks for continuing the effort!

Incredible teaching

Ian is probably one of THE best resources when it comes to improving your tennis. I often try to find ways to apply his lessons and see my game jump leaps and bounds through the process. It’s very easy to listen during your commuting hours as well as maybe during lunch.Keep up the great work Ian! Your work is greatly appreciated.

Great Tennis Podcast for all!!!

The topics of these podcasts range from the simple to the complex, but can be applied to all tennis hopefuls. I’ve learned so much from these like, controlling my temper on the court and thinking about why I truly want to play tennis and how to improve it. Great podcast overall and keep up the great work. -Andy
