To achieve the most benefit from your weekly tennis lesson you need to be well prepared beforehand.
- Eat a nuturious, high energy snack, food at least 30 mins before you arrive at the courts.
- Your blood sugar level needs to be high so you can concentrate, have loads of energy to move well and give your best effort to your coach.
- Any fruit is best-I love bananas as they are easy to eat, taste great and are high in natural sugar.
Also a sandwich, muffin or a small snack if coming from school is fine.
- Water bottle full of water is always needed even in winter as your body can dehydrate very quickly.
Wear a cap all year for sun, wind, hair protection.
Shoelaces tied firmly BEFORE you enter the court so your movement, court speed is at it`s best.
Try to be 10 mins early for your lesson if possible so you can:-
Do a few easy stretches then perhaps a short walk around outside of courts to loosen and warm up your muscles.
ENJOY your lesson as you are now well prepared to have fun at tennis!
