Other sports bound to help your tennis! Keep them going!
Domes packed with players and action on the outdoor clay!
One of our EBT Hard Cores demonstrated here beautifully by Berdych. Note the 'side-on' position of racket face. Many youngsters 'close' racket face at this point (strings facing ground) in effort to gain topspin. Problem is ball tends to drop short as 'hitting zone' can be compromised. See also his great posture. Set-up behind ball like this for spin, power and consistency!
Gemma puts our Futuros squad through their paces Wednesday! Nice job boys!!
The first line of the ethos of 'everyball' reads:
'We commit to fight for every ball, to run down every ball, and to play every ball with courageous purpose.'
Fighting for every ball links to our every ball hard cores of 'athletic look to split as they hit' as well as 'beating the bounce of both the incoming and your outgoing ball.' Running every ball down? No ball ever bounces twice in front of you or gets passed you!
But what does playing every ball with courageous purpose mean? We believe that it's doing the right thing at the right time and in the right place, and doing it with conviction. An example of this could be: after a long rally player is pulled out wide onto FH side, and feeling tired there is a strong impulse to 'go for broke' down the line. The courageous thing to do is to overcome this temptation, be prepared to 'suffer' a little more and go 'high and heavy' back down the middle to neutralise and stay in the point ready for a better opportunity.
In another scenario a player is up 5-4 40-30 against a player they have never beaten before. Having worked well to open up space the winner down the line is on. Does the player now have the courage to 'go for it' to seal the set.
I suppose we're all asked to the the courageous thing on a day to day basis, not just on the tennis court. Right thing, right time, right place, with conviction. Have a courageous day!
Due to the current high winds and more specifically the severe gusts exceeding 50 miles per hour, we have now taken the decision to cancel our indoor courses at Halton tomorrow, Saturday 10th January. Whilst we recognise an accident of any sort is very unlikely, we simply cannot afford any level of risk to our customers in our air domes. We do apologise for the inconvenience and the re-arranged session will take place on Saturday 21st of February. We look forward to seeing all our Saturday customers next week (17th Jan) and hope you understand the action we have to take from time to time when these weather conditions occur.
