Key Tips For Encouraging Your Child With Their Tennis
- Stress the ‘fun side’ of playing – skill development comes from enjoyment
- Show your interest in learning/playing too!
- Tennis practice doing “bouncy uppy’s can be a bit lonely, try to spare 30 minutes to knock a ball back and forth with your child
