There was a cardiac event recently at one of the courts.  Carla Schauer has added first aid kits to the club boxes at Memorial, Cherry Hill, and Northshire.  The kits include aspirin. It's a good idea to know the combos to the boxes even if you don't regularly use them.  Codes are on the members only page at: https://inwpc.com/Members-only-content/

Taking the advice from martial arts, there is an acronym that is used: ASP.  It stands for accuracy, speed, power.  They are prioritized in that order.  Hitting more accurate and precise shots will trump power. 

As you gain consistency and accuracy, only then start to ramp up the power.
