Special Tennis Topics for Parents
A wealth of information and guidance on topics such as physical and mental fitness, girls participation, complementary sports and more!
There is a lot of talk about the benefits of “multisports” and children not being focused on only one sport, particularly at a young age. Tennis and football are sports that tend to be played in different seasons. We interviewed i2c Director Mark Tennant, who leads our Coach Education programme, about how these two sports are complementary.
It isn't news that there are far fewer girls than boys playing tennis. i2c is supportive of high profile initiatives such as She Rallies and Miss Hits that are working hard to improve that balance. So to help both coaches and parents understand the problem - and potential solutions - we interviewed i2c Area Manager, accredited coach and She Rallies Ambassador, Mel Short.
Djokovic’s dominance at the top of the ratings is due not just to his extraordinary physical fitness but to his innovative approach to the mental side of tennis through Mindfulness meditation. No-one in the i2c office is trained in meditation techniques, but we've used our knowledge of Mindfulness meditation to get you started with a short 10 minute meditation.
