A discussion about the REAL reason you should be playing tennis tournaments and what your goal should be in each tournament.
Nice one Jorge (as always). Every time we put ourselves out of our comfort zone we get the opportunity to learn, whether we take the opportunity is dependent on our mind set. Thank you,
Good attitude. Your clips are an excellent way to start the day, thank you coach!
Thanking you for posting this. Had a discussion the other day with my own kids who wanted to know why schools had to have exams, and boy do they dread it. My only reasonable offer to them as to why, was that there was a need to take a ‘snap-shot’ of of what they have learnt and remembered and that there was really no other way for the teachers/school to know the state of each child’s learning. Hence the need to find out what strengths and weaknesses each child has through a ‘snap-shot’ at a given point in time of their school careers. So I believe your ‘notion’ of a feedback is completely inline with that teaching concept and you are right in that if a child should ‘want to know’ how they are doing with all their training, the normal thing to do is to play and find out thus removing the negative pressure building normally associated with playing tournaments. Another hit here, Jorge!
Thanks Jorge. Learning, sometimes overlooked for skill building when playing tourneys!
I agree with you on why play tournaments or even just matches. The player either win or learn, and that’s the attitude to adopt especially among recreational players.
