The general objective for all students is to recognize that tennis is a game, and we play tennis for and with the love of the game. The objective of the game is not only to win, but to enjoy playing, and enjoy yourself, winning will come as a result of this. When you enjoy playing, you will organically learn better, play better, try harder, and the tennis coach will enjoy teaching you, while your parents enjoy watching you.
The tennis coach doesn’t expect the student to be able to learn tennis quickly however, they do expect to see you trying as hard to develop as a tennis player. Students will be committed to tennis not because they have to be, but because they themselves want to grow, have fun, and have ambition for the sport. It is important to have a positive attitude, even when you can’t win, in order to learn from the experience and bring it into your future experiences. Having a negative attitude will not lead to any form of benefit, it will only add factors such as stress, and doubt to your game.
