Games Based Tennis Practice to Stir the Heart, Soul, and Play of Your Teamby TTCA Texas Tennis Coaches Association
The reason we play tennis is for the love of the GAME.
Everyone loves games. And Incorporating more games into your practices will naturally lead to more engagement and buy-in from players.
The other benefit to games is COMPETITION.
Where a lot of instruction can be mechanical, technical, and uninspiring... games are FUN. And competition is built in.
Competition breeds success as each player strives to come out "on top".
In this insightful look at the games based approach, Greg Patton shows us how we can design our practices for maximum player engagement.
Your players will learn to COMPETE through fun, engaging games... that will naturally translate to more W's.
