Club Night Newsletter – 9th January

Hi Everyone

Hopefully you’re embracing and settling in to 2019. Another new year of goals and dreams!! What will this year have in store for you?? Hopefully all good!!

Club News

Notice the new club info “things” on the tables in the club house. An insight into what’s going on or coming up for your diaries. Go on and have a read!!

Men’s 1sts lost a close match v Wimbledon at the weekend. (Dutton, Love, Parry, Edwards)

Tennis balls for sale at club. See Brian. Can’t beat playing with new balls!

Congratulations to Chris Cowls MBE for charity work. If you see him around (left hander) give him a bow!! Amazing achievement. Still needs a bit of work on his backhand tho!!!

Coaching Tip of the Week

It’s good to play singles and doubles. The social side of the game is great, but if you want to really improve you need to put more focus on specific parts of your game:

Are you pressuring your opponent with your presence?? Looking to intercept, looking lively, looking positive! (Doesn’t mean having a dodgy freaky smile!)

Are you attacking a weaker serve and pressuring 1st shot?? Step in more and take the ball earlier.

Are you getting on your strongest shot as much as possible?? Might mean more footwork but your giving yourself better chance of pressuring your opponent again.

Drink of the Week – A little sparkle for the New Year!

Club night all back to normal so New Year’s resolution to come down Wednesdays and have some fun and meet new or same old folks 6.30-9pm. Just turn up whenever you like.
