'We are committed to fight for everyball, to run down everyball and to play everyball with courageous purpose. We see everyball as an opportunity to explore, with curiosity and creativity, our potential to become all we can. We know that everyball extends beyond our sport as we learn the fundamental life skills & values of respect, responsibility, reflection and resilience that help us to thrive in an ever-changing world' - Mike James 2020
Welcome to the Everyball blog - a platform for my views, musings and observations on all things 'coaching'.
I have been deeply involved in the coaching profession for the past 30 years, mainly in the sporting context but in other areas of life as well. I am an LTA High Performance Coach and Coach Education Tutor and Mentor, and as Director of Tennis at Halton Tennis Centre in the UK I am the founder/director of 'Everyball Tennis', our 'cradle to tour' coaching programme.
What is 'everyball'? Call it a philosophy, an ethos, or a thinking system, it attempts to communicate how I view the game and the ways in which we can apply lessons from the court into our everyday lives.
