This is a bi-weekly Sunday evening meetup for up to eight players who would like to up-level their games through contemplating basic tips from the classic game while participating in skill enhancing drills. The average NTRP rating system ranking for attendees in these meetups is about 3.0 with about a plus or minus .5 variation
One of the things that I intend for you to achieve by means of these meetups is flexibility, the understanding an error can be like a blip on a screen that need not become the defining statement on your abilities. Rather, as a former mentor of mine used to say, "let it roll off you like water off a duck's back." There are countless means of bringing your attention back to the current moment, to the next ball that is already upon you. We make multiple errors when we stay stuck with the shot that is over, even a second ago.
Another important skill we need to cultivate is the ability to identify just exactly what we are doing when we initiate or respond to a shot, so that adjustments are not only possible, but simplified.
Anyone that attends my groups with an open mind, ready to possibly look at their game from a slightly different perspective is usually pleasantly surprised. I think you will be as well! Usually the final half hour of any group comprises doubles play or other appropriate competition.
By honor system and on the day of, there is a nominal charge of $15.00 per meetup, plus or minus as you see fit to a designated bag. There is a discussion on this topic on the message board.
Beyond that, we will have round robin competitions several times a year as has been on-going for at least the past twenty-five years. Recent round robins were at Plummer Park in West Hollywood on July 21 and Griffith Park Vermont Canyon courts, August 18!
Finally, please feel free to join us at North Hollywood Tough ~Love~ Tennis Teams, where there are many discussions also underway plus additional guided workout options.
Please be in touch with me through one of the message boards, through comments or rsvp for this meetup, or through email. I will only exchange phone numbers with you through email.
