8board Tennis Training Aid
The 8Board invented by tennis coaches Jack Broudy and Paul Mayberry, has been used over the past ten years by many of today’s premiere young athletes. Former Wake Forest All American and #1 U.S. Junior, Steven Forman credited the 8Board for much of his success. Forman confessed "the 8Board gave me an unfair advantage over my opponents. It helped me to learn and groove all my strokes and was great for warming up before my matches."
Broudy and the 8Board were instrumental in developing many of today’s top American tennis players, including Sam Querrey, Steve Forman and Steve Johnson. Broudy and Mayberry have also done extensive work with top tennis academies World-wide and NCAA record setting coach, Peter Smith and his winning USC tennis teams, NCAA Champions 2009-2012.
According to Broudy, "the 8Board utilizes the patented double-swivel to develop a “figure 8” motion in the hips, that then expands out to the arms that creates effortless power, as seen in game of Roger Federer. It works on the same geometric principles and science that illuminate the motion of a bullwhip cracking."
The 8Board is available at http://www.8board.com for 119.95 including free shipping in the U.S. It is the state of the art for all athletes and coaches wanting to excel in their sport. Broudy contends that the 8Board “is essential for any person who wants to feel, move and play like a real player with natural looking, powerful and consistent strokes."
