There can be many ups and downs when you're playing competitive tennis - a lot like life.
There are times when we can experience dismay and frustration - and yet other times when we enjoy a sense of achievement and satisfaction. Experience teaches us the importance of maintaining a positive mindset - and not to define ourselves by whether we have "won or lost".
Instead it's more about doing our best ... and about enjoying the journey, as much as any destination. Through playing tennis and for that matter, any sport - children can learn so much about themselves and what it takes to achieve their goals in life. As well as the benefits gained from healthy exercise, kids can potentially also gain personal growth and self-development.
These are some of the core values that we hope our Club can encourage in our Juniors ....... It's not about whether you beat someone else or not - it's about simply being the best you can be. You might like to also check out our awesome page on Mental Toughness
