Developing leg drive and coordination on serve....
Had a nice sit down for 10 mins to take it in - centre court on a warm September evening. Scores still on the doors.
If we can learn anything about learning it's this:
There are no quick fixes. There are no magic bullets.
Instead, the perseverance to daily practice, the piling up of quality session upon quality session leads to transformational change over time.
This is a truth which our society wants to erode. Instant information, instant entertainment, instant gratification, instant messaging & communication.
Good to see our Seniors last night back to training. Working at becoming expert as the basics. Doing the mundane work that simply needs to be done.
A new Everyball/Halton UK initiative for competition players aged 12+
As part of the Everyball Academy, we are delighted to announce the launch of the Everyball Touring Team.
The EBT Touring Team will cover international tournaments such as Tennis Europe and ITF’s, as well as domestic events including British Tours, junior grade 1/2’s and regional competitions. The benefits of being part of a touring team with on-hand coach support are well documented and experienced by many of you and we are thrilled to bring this increased level of service to our players. In fact, because we know that much of the 'magic' takes place out on the road in terms of player development we will also be investing considerable resources into this programme to increase sustainability and affordability to our players.
head coach of the EBT Touring Team is Roy
who most of you will already know from our Aspire to Excel programme.
He will be planning and organising the EBT
Touring Team Calendar
for the coming year, and he and touring assistant Coach Ed
will be the key travelling coaches for future tournament trips,
supported at various times by further members of the EBT Performance
Coaching team (see Roy and Ed pictured below)
