One of the best ways to improve is to play. In fact, according to tennisfiles.com playing tournaments is the 4th most important thing you can do.
people who play tennis casually never reach their potential because they never challenge themselves.
I hope that most of you have gotten out on the court a little bit this summer. I want to take this moment to encourage you to use the tools you have to make yourself better.
If you haven’t started playing USTA tournaments, please do so ASAP. These will help you get that competition that you’ve been missing since the season ended. The players that sign up and play these tournaments with a passion are the ones that advance the most over summer. We are fortunate enough to have a Challenger level event coming up in our area next month. Please go and sign up here.
You can use the USTA’s tennis link website to look for other tournaments in your area as well.
If you want to improve, you have to challenge yourself. This is one of the best ways to do that. Don’t be scared of losing. Losing helps you improve and get stronger more than winning can.
