Tennis memory board donated by alumni

Wadena High School alum Steve Paper donated a topspin memory board as a training aid for the Wadena-Deer Creek tennis team.

WDC players used the memory board during the season to improve their topspin. The board does not allow a player to perform a topspin stroke incorrectly.


According to Tranvik, the board guides the racket so a player has the correct racket face angle and swing path to hit topspin.

Paper currently works at a tennis club in Reseda, Calif.
