… and here we are again… within the sun at early morning :)

Early in the morning warm up before starting to experience the elements of the Tennis Talents Method is already the essence of each Day…

… each point we introduce first… starting with questions… and answers… and then once the idea is shared… there is always a need to try it with the racket on the court… to experience it… feel it and develop it…

… and here is the group trying to hit the ball in a different manner… before this exercise the Group learn the difference of their precision… and in which part of the court they should aim at their current level… that was a very interesting moment :)

… today Masha had her individual assessment session with Max being her sparing partner…

Early in the morning warm up before starting to experience the elements of the Tennis Talents Method is already the essence of each Day…

… each point we introduce first… starting with questions… and answers… and then get explained… once the idea is shared… there is always a need to try it with the racket on the court… to experience it… feel it and develop it…

… and the basics we’ve seen… Play far away from the opponent… move it… change rhythm… high deep spin balls if they bounce above the shoulder create problems to the opponent… very low slice balls if they bounce below the knee create problems to the opponent… and timing element related with hitting at the highest point of bounce… :)

… and on each courts the alumni tried to put in practice the new elements… and here are Masha with help of Max exploring the tactics element…

… and Tara had her individual assessment session with Matthias being her sparing partner…

… and individual assessment is always a nice surprise for all :D
