Just a quick note to say that we are planning on running evening squads as normal later today although if winds pick up further we will make any necessary last minute notification informing you otherwise at 4pm.
Thanks a lot,
Mike and TEAM
Dr Carok Dweck's definition of potential: 'the ability to develop skills with effort over time.'
Everyball definition of talent then is 'the ability to develop skills with effort over a shorter period of time!'
That goes for the talented player and coach.
It's still about skills, effort and time!
Thanks for playing in the pro-am yesterday gang! Represented yourselves very well!
Beat the bounce of the incoming ball - Kvitova has just completed her set up phase behind the ball prior to its bounce and is beginning the power producing phase driving her weight from the back foot, racket poised to drop below contact. Note practice partner other end making split step to be timed at contact with athletic look (hard core no. 1)
Some good stick work by Miles
Members of our Thursday 'Promesas' squad pose for a pic! Fun, hard-work and a little Spanish thrown in with Coach Guti!
'There are known knowns; there are things we know that we know. There are known unknowns; that is to say, there are things that we know that we don't know. But there are also unknown unknowns - there are things we do not know we don't know.' Sec of State Rumsfeld in a 2002 press briefing about US intelligence on Iraq's possible possession of weapons of mass destruction. (From 'Make it Stick')
Classic racket and body preparation behind oncoming ball.
