It was great to be in on a 'zoom' get-together last night with the Everyball coaching team and see some faces that I've missed now for a few weeks. We are all in different situations, some back at home with parents for a while, some with young families, some on their own entirely and some, like me, with slightly older teenagers. As a result the 'experience' we are all going through is varied, but gratefully so far everyone is well and safe and of course we are united by our desire to get back to work when it's safe to do so and have been already planning behind the scenes for this.
Meanwhile, there is this time to use as constructively as possible and dare I say it, enjoy. The weekly 'clap' for all NHS workers and those in the front line is quite incredible and also represents a significant coming together of local streets and communities. Let's hope some encouraging noises from the government yesterday really do come to mean a significant turning of the tide with this horrible virus over this long Easter weekend and of course we'll be doing our bit by sticking to advice and staying home.
Here's another short video to perhaps give you a little 'tennis' focus on this Good Friday.

The ‘jab’ sits in the same family as the ‘hit’ feeling, this time bringing a short burst of speed into contact but very little after. If a swing scale always has to equal 10 units, a jab would be an 8/2 (ish) ratio of swing before and after contact. Have a play around with this today @everyballtennis @prov3_halton @haltonuk #happyeaster #stayhome #keeppositive #practicemakespermanent
