First Live Skype Session Next Week

Interest in the live Skype sessions has been overwhelming! So much so that I've decided to bring forward the date for the free test sessions. They will now take place during the WTA Championships which begin on Friday 17th October. This does mean that there will be a lot of disappointed people as I cannot fit everyone who has shown an interest into a session.

I should stress that only the first session is guaranteed to be free. If all goes well, there are no teething problems and I am comfortable and have fun in the session, I will not be offering any further free sessions. If there were any problems or I feel that I need to run through another session to get the service as good quality as I would want it, then I will offer more free sessions in order to fine tune things.

When the paid service begins, priority will be given to Academy members and people who have bought the guide. Further details will be on the blog as soon as they are finalised. Please note that the Academy is now closed to new members. I am full for the whole of 2015 and will not be offering any new spaces.

If you have emailed me to ask to go into the draw for the free sessions, please check your email inbox next week, as I will be making the draw as soon as I know the order of play for next Friday's matches. If you don't hear from me, it means you did not win a free spot but please keep checking right up to the start time of each match because if someone drops out, I will draw a new name to take their place (and yes, I am actually doing a draw, World Cup stylee, with balls and velvet and glass bowls and everything!)

I'm really excited about this now. It will be the first time I've ever traded in front of anyone else, so it will be a daunting experience. But if all goes well, I will be looking to start the Sultan Skype Sessions properly during the ATP World Tour Finals and also to cover the Davis Cup Final and possibly some of the inaugural International Premier Tennis League (for any days I'm not away on holiday) which I wrote about in my last post. There's even a chance I may start as early as the Paris Masters 1000 and WTA Tournament of Champions. So keep a close eye on the blog for details.
