During my long tennis career 😉 I have tried a couple of different tennis sensors – my partner has the Babolat POP (which I have already reviewed for this blog) and I have used the Zepp tennis sensor. The Babolat POP has been a great success and my partner uses it for every single training or match. I have not used the Zepp so much as I have the flex mount that sticks out of the end of the racket, and it feels a bit strange to play with – I think I will need to buy the pro mount…

Since last summer I have now acquired a small wardrobe of Lucky in Love pieces and outfits, so last week I decided to do a video on my YouTube channel to showcase them. In case you…

Earlier this month I received a Racket Box in the post for me to review for my blog. I immediately posted a photo of the goodies inside the box on my Instagram profile (along with a cheeky flash of my legs, which haven’t seen the light of day for quite a few months now!) Since then I have had a chance to try out some of the items in the box, and I wanted to let you know how I got on, and my thoughts on these subscription tennis boxes. First up, let me list the contents of the racket box that I…
