The Secrets to Winning Recreational Tennis Matches

The Secrets to Winning Recreational Tennis Matches

I have been playing recreational tennis matches for close to 10 years now. For the first few years, I would lose a lot, often to players who I thought had weaker tennis skills than me. It was quite frustrating.

It took me about 4 years of playing matches to figure out how I could win more tennis matches. There are three things I do now that result in me winning a lot more than I used to.

ONE: Engaging in a Little Intelligence

Almost any recreational player will hit the ball the same way almost every time. Study you’re your opponent a little more closely at the beginning of a match. Hit a cross court shot to his or her backhand and see where and how the ball comes back to you. Then do the same thing with the forehand.

Most likely, you will see a pattern. Once you know the pattern, you can anticipate it and come up with a counter shot for winning the point.

TWO: Tie Your Shoe

Most recreational players will speed up their pace of play when things are going badly for them. If they serve a fault, they will waste no time to serve another ball without much thought. And they will rush through points and shots which in most cases result in many lost points.

This negative state is common in tennis and you have to break the pattern first with your mind before your tennis skills can help you get out of a hole. The best way to do that is to slow down your pace of play and get your head to think of something else- even if it is just for a few minutes. This break will help cut off the downward spiral of lost points.

I do this y bending down to tie my shoe. When you tie your shoe, your mind has to get off on focusing on how badly you played the last point of the last game. And this short mind vacation will help you to get back on track.

THREE: Practice Consistency

This is the most important improvement you can make to your game. For many years, I would go out and practice with someone by just hitting balls back and forth and rallying. We would not think much about where we were placing the ball and we definitely had no rhyme or reason to our practice sessions.

This is the common method of practice for most recreational players. But, if you look at the serious players, they always have a method and curriculum for their practices. They will practice one shot hundreds of times in a session.

And the shots they practice are the ones they get in matches. In order to hit a shot consistently, you must practice it thousands of times. For example, tell your practice partners you are going to practice cross court ground strokes and then try to hit long cross courts back and forth trying to get … Read More

Earn While Traveling In Your Recreational Vehicle

Recreational vehicles are a perfect way to enjoy your free time with your family. You can travel and explore unknown places and make friends with a lot of new people. But while you are enjoying your travel, there are ways to make money for your travel and living. For some people, just the idea of travel will not give enough satisfaction. Many are not familiar with the options available for making money while on the road. You are not required to be in the office for making money. Recreational vehicles offer ways in which you can make money while you can still enjoy your vacation, as it is.

Here we will look into some of the simple ways in which we can create some cash by making use of our recreational vehicle vacations. The thing to do is to get familiar with recreational park camps. This is a place where you can find some seasonal work. As these camps are temporary, the posts offered by them are also temporary. Camps are usually accompanied with hotels, museums, restaurants, shops etc. Such places will need temporary employees who are willing to work in reception areas, shop areas, cash registers etc. Other easier posts include that of tour assistants, maintenance staff, activity directors etc. If you have talent in management, you can pull off such jobs with ease.

Another option is to become a traveling salesman. If you have got a skill or product, you can take it across the country for making a good income. As your recreational vehicle will double itself as a shop and your home, you can go where you can find enough customers for your products. You can sell camping cloths, handmade articles, food, craft items etc. Make use of your teaching skill while on the travel. While you are in a new place, you can teach arts and crafts or can provide lectures for others. It is easy for you to give do-it-yourself skills to others by taking some tutorials from YouTube.

You can share the talent with some clubs or associations which are willing to pay you. Prior arrangements are to be made for your visit with the leader of that community. This will earn you money and will allow you to enjoy your travel at a minimal cost. There are jobs titles like life guards, national monument guards, etc in the places where you travel. Another great option is to avail your service to a fellow recreational vehicle owner. An experienced traveler can help solving the problems and can give tips for caring their vehicles. All these jobs blends well along with the vacation mood and will stop draining your wallet while traveling.… Read More
