Features:

1) Make Your Practice Fun and Exciting

Practicing tennis or doing any other task for that matter can be made fun
and exciting by turning it into a game. For years I have been using lots of
games in teaching tennis to children and adults. (Especially with children.)
But maybe most of us would prefer to make the learning as fun as possible.
So I'll be adding even more games into my private lessons. I've found that
children learn much better when they are in a game situation. I can even
make them willingly run to pick up tennis balls if they feel it will help
them win the overall competition.

This past week was game week at East Brunswick Racquet Club. So for every
junior tennis league class I turned the lessons into games with points. All
of a sudden students were using techniques that I wanted them to use in the
past because they needed these techniques to win the game. In the past I had
to struggle with many of these kids to get them to try what I wanted. But
when a game was involved they did it without hesitation. In fact I am
writing this Tennis Update as part of a game. I have given myself a time
limit within which to try and get it done. It is a very aggressive time
limit and therefore I am typing and thinking quickly. This is making it very
fun for me. I am getting into the Zone. Now lets see how we can apply games
and goal setting to your practice sessions.

First you need to establish a goal you want to achieve during your practice
session. What do you want to work on? How good do you want to be by the end
of practice?

Next create a Desire Statement. Explain vividly to yourself or write down
the benefits of having achieved your practice session goal. Or you can write
down the benefit of your longer-term goal. Let's say my goal was to develop
a great return of serve. My Desire Statement would be something like this:
"With my great return of serve I am beating players who always used to beat
me in the past. For some reason this one improvement has given me tremendous
confidence and it has raised my NTRP Rating a half level." Just find
something that would really motivate you and you'll have the fuel and
motivation to achieve your goal.

Next go into your practice session and plan how much time you will devote to
warm-up and how much to working on your return of serve. If your first goal
is to simply hit the ball on the strings on each return, then turn that into
a game. Have your partner serve to you and all you have to focus on is
hitting the balls on the strings. Maybe set a goal to hit 7 out of 10
returns on your strings. This of course will depend on your skill level and
that of your opponent. You can increase the difficulty of the return by
either having your partner serve from the service line or make yourself move
up closer than you normally would while practicing.

The key here is to turn every element of your practice session into a game.
Give yourself points for the things you want to be doing. Maybe subtract
points for failures, it's up to you because it's your game. Use any rule
that will engage your mind. I often make the rules of my games dependent on
the personality of the people in the group I am making the game for. Then
decide on a reward you will give yourself if you win the game. Maybe buy
yourself a present or go out for dinner to a nice restaurant. What I think
you'll find however is that your practice sessions might become so fun that
you don't need to reward yourself further.

The idea for what I am writing about came from the book "The Einstein
Factor." This book shows you how to be more creative and productive. It has
a wealth of techniques to improve almost any area of your life. Plus you'll
learn how increase your brainpower tremendously. The book shows that
Einstein's intelligence was more a cumulative process rather than that he
was some kind of born genius. Basically he developed his genius through
practice not natural ability. To him Physics was like a game. He enjoyed it
and spent time studying it every day because he loved doing so. I think that
is a major key to being successful at anything; simply loving what you do.


2) Great Summer Specials at East Brunswick Racquet Club

The summer season is now here at East Brunswick Racquet Club (EBRC for
short). Indoor tennis lessons have gotten much cheaper. I am encouraging
most of the people who take outdoor lessons with me to go indoors instead.
We'll always be guaranteed a court and we won't have to worry about rain or
wind. No more having to go to another court because the courts we went to
were already filled up with players.

The private lesson rate with me at EBRC is now only $50 per hour. If you
purchase 6 lessons in advance it will only cost you $45 per hour. Unlimited
Summer Members only pay $35 per hour. The winter indoor lesson price was $65
per hour. So you can save up to $30 per hour. I'll list a few more of the
summer specials below.

Actually they are listed at the EBRC website. So I'll just give you some
links to follow. The main point is that you can get an unlimited summer
membership for $225. That means you can play for free with unlimited court
time during the summer session. (No extra charge for court time) Also now
your private lesson rate will drop to only $35 per hour if you are an
Unlimited Summer Member. This is a great deal. How many days of tennis did
you miss due to rain or it being too hot? Our courts are air conditioned.
You have perfect playing conditions and can get really inexpensive tennis
lessons. $35 instead of $65; you save $30 per lesson. There are other
discounts associated with the unlimited summer membership as well. Just
follow the first link below.

Here are links for more details.

========================================================

STRINGING WITH PRIDE: I take a lot of pride in stringing your racquets. I
have two stringing certifications from the United States Racquet Stringers
Association and 17 years stringing experience. If you come to me, you can
have confidence in your racquet being properly strung and the racquet's
performance being maximized. I've strung over 24,000 racquets in my day and
have a very large and loyal following in the East Brunswick area. If you
ever have any problem or question with a racquet I've strung, feel free to
contact me and I'll gladly do my best to make sure you are satisfied.

I hope you enjoyed and benefited from this update. Please email me if you
have any suggestions as to how I can make it more useful for you. I'm here
to serve you.

create a Desire Statement. Explain vividly to yourself or write down the

go into your practice session and plan how much time you will devote to =

and how much to working on your return of serve. If your first goal is =
to
simply hit the ball on the strings on each return, then turn that into a =
game.
Have your partner serve to you and all you have to focus on is hitting =
the
balls on the strings. Maybe set a goal to hit 7 out of 10 returns on =
your
strings. This of course will depend on your skill level and that of your

your mind. I often make the rules of my games dependent on the =
