"Do not lockdown your tennis" CTA COVID-19 response

The health and wellbeing of the students of CTA is of utmost importance for us at the moment, and our thoughts are with anyone who has been affected by the coronavirus. As the lockdown continues, getting back on court seems a distant reality. But it is important for tennis players like us to stay fit and keep moving. 

Few tips to keep you going

Improve on your technique

Your coach knows you better, so start a dialogue with the coaches whilst at home and discuss the things that need to be worked on in terms of technique. There are many resources online to look at or simply get on a video call with your coach.

Work on your Tactics

Players can use the time on their hands to write down particular tactics that they want to use when they get on court. You could also use this time to come up with tactics tailored to suit the opponents that they would be meeting in the local circuit.

Stay fit

Nothing is more important for a tennis player than the fitness. This particular aspect of tennis is probably the easiest to do while the players are at home. General physical exercises such as skipping, circuit training, fartlek running, and body weight exercises are all exercises which require little to no space to be done.
