Quote of the Month: May 2020

This month's quote is from Rod Laver, an Australian legend who won 11 Grand slam titles in the 1960s.



"The next point — that’s all you must think about."

Rod Laver


Having had almost 6 weeks away from the tennis court we can't wait for our next point. Rod is clearly making this comment regarding letting go of previous points and also not looking too far ahead. At all levels the mental side of the game is greatly important. You must be fully focused on the present point in order to give yourself the best chance to win that point. Lingering about that missed volley from a previous game or thinking about the end of the match will distract you. The best way to practice it is by competing and training concentration in practice sessions.


We look forward to being able to see you on court soon.
