You Don’t Have to be Good

You don’t have to play at a high level to enjoy the game. It is a simple game that is fun. When given your full attention, you are in control of your part of the game you are playing..

Tennis is a game of mistakes and the best of the best have learned to reduce them. That’s right, REDUCE them, not get rid of them. The main thing to gain from the application of the 3 Components for Excellent Hitting is a giant reduction in errors.

Being “GOOD” is a judgement that is too often a center of focus for people as they attempt to play. As odd as it could seem, most “GOOD” players are that way despite their errors. They simply PLAY with determination and intention. The serious business of judging good and bad takes the focus away from the 1st component, “KEEP SEEING” the ball. Mistakes are going to happen and they will be difficult to ignore especially when a player is trying very hard to “WIN”. A player can find him or herself volleying criticisms in their mind instead of seeing the ball they are about to volley. If a mistake is made the ball will always show the position of the racket when it was hit. This datum can be used to make adjustments when it is processed as INFORMATION and not as a judgement of good or bad. The 3 Components for Excellent Hitting, when applied, will overcome need to be “GOOD”. You simply will be too busy having fun to be concerned about it.
