Tennis Tips from the Pro's
With the upcoming league tournament season approaching, it's important to prepary by:

  • Playing competitive matches in high pressure situations, not just with players that are more experienced but, also with players whom may be less experienced.
  • Keep a tennis journal on your progress and areas of improvement
  • Check in with your coach often and practice strengths and weaknesses
  • Keep a good attitude and remember it's not about winning or losing; it's about giving your best effort
  • Remember, it's the game of tennis not the torture of tennis, so enjoy the process and have fun
One Reason to Play Tennis
Agility, Flexibility and Improved Balance
Due to constantly moving and running around the court, increased stretching of the body and frequent change of direction with respect to the direction of the ball; tennis improves your balance and co-ordination.  Not only that, tennis also makes you agile and flexible due to the above mentioned activities.
