Having Fun with #KillerSpin During the February Freeze

Recently, my husband and his good friend opened a 25,000 square foot sports facility in New Rochelle, New York called A-Game Sports. The space is pretty amazing with indoor turf for soccer, lacrosse, baseball, softball, strength training and more. If you play on a team sport, there’s always something for everyone. But what I happen to love about the space is that there are tons of places for parents, grandparents and kids to hang out or in the words of the world’s largest table tennis brand Killerspin…it’s time to #UnPlugNPlay!

The team at Killerspin, which had sent us a portable table tennis set for our home, set up a professional style table at A-Game Sports and it’s been a huge hit. The really cool thing about the table is that it’s super easy to assemble and you can even split it in two so if you don’t have anyone to play with, you can literally push it up against the wall and play yourself! The Killerspin paddles are also super cool and my son says when you play it actually seems like the speed is faster than with one of the older tables we had been using at home. Take a look and check out this recent match between father and son…

Killerspin is the world’s only luxury table tennis experience brand. They have tons of great options for families and businesses and what I love is that they are encouraging families to spend time together with a fun game of ping pong.
So far, we’ve found the Killerspin table to also be a hit with kids, parents and the coaches at A-Game Sports who have played several high energy matches in between their sessions. Honestly, the thing I love most is not seeing kids glued to their tablets or phones when they are at A-Game Sports. Finally, we have an indoor space for kids to run around, get some great exercise and #UnPlugNPlay! A big thanks to Killerspin for adding even more fun to the newest home for sports enthusiasts!

Baseball Season: Pursuing Your Field of Dreams

iStock_000001717350Medium.jpgAbout seven years ago, I had a long talk with my husband. I was a vice president at a major television network and yet, I felt like there was still something out there for me to do. At the time, I was bitten by the blogging bug and had launched a company called Role Mommy where I was producing events for women at the top of their game balancing work and family. The more I spoke to female entrepreneurs, the more I felt the energy and excitement about leaving a safe career behind and jumping into the deep end to experience what it’s like to be a business owner.
Fast forward to 2014 and I am still a business owner. Role Mommy is still alive and well and my public relations business, Beyond PR Group is thriving with the help of my business partner and a talented staff comprised of superstar writers, publicists and client service dynamos. As I continue to build my business, it’s now time for my husband to soar.
Though he spent two decades in finance, he’s finally decided to leave that world behind to finally do what he loves. This past month, he and a good friend have teamed up to launch A-Game Sports, a summer baseball day camp for kids in Westchester County and New York City offering training, game play, strength and conditioning and field trips each week to minor and major league baseball games. The program will also offer a scholarship program where qualified students from Westchester and New York City could be eligible to attend day camp for free.
While it might be nerve wracking to finally pursue your passion full time, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I want my husband and his friend to grow A-Game Sports together, thrive and enjoy every minute of it. Sure there will be ups and downs and obstacles they never expected would be thrown their way, but I am confident that they will succeed. Because when you get to do what you truly love, no matter how much money you make, it really doesn’t matter. It’s more about finding out what makes you tick and right now, we are on the clock in a very big way.
I am really thrilled for my husband because he is living the Role Mommy motto: Helping your children realize their hopes and dreams doesn’t mean you have to give up on your own. Here’s to building our own field of dreams. People will come…you’ve just gotta believe!
