    April 11, 2019
    Did you know 62% of women in Victoria say they want to become more physically active? That's why 'This Girl Can - Victoria' begun their celebration of women being active, no matter how they look or their skills. They support gender equality by challenging traditional gender roles (sporty and active as male traits) and by celebrating women who are fit and strong. Through their research, they found that women were worrying about being judged when they exercise, and often were too embarrassed or intimidated to exercise in public. That's why This Girl Can – Victoria is about giving it a go and getting active; no matter how well you do it, how you look, or how sweaty you get. Whether it’s a walk in the park, a gym sesh, a killer run, or gathering a few gal pals for a game of netball, there are so many ways to get active. Here are just a few ideas to help you get started One of the sports they suggest is tennis! If you're looking to learn more about the sport and receive some recreational or competitive lessons, for children, adolescent or adults, see here! We also have the opportunity to book courts so you can come down with your friends and have a fun, low-key, social game on your own terms!

Students are able to focus on certain techniques that they need to work on. 5.

    Roger Federer VS Novak Djokovic Wimbledon 2019
    July 23, 2019
    Some amazing numbers were produced by these two greats of the game! Federer won 14 more points for the match but still lost in 5 sets. Reminds us how important the sequence of points are in tennis! For example, if you get to game point first you only have to win one more point to win the game whereas your opponent has to win 3 points in a row. In fact, Federer won every single stat for the match except the unforced error count but he did achieve a better winner to error ratio overall of 1.5 : 1 versus Novak’s 1 : 1. Winner to Error ratio is an important number based on your game plan and intention. Someone like Novak or Simona Halep hit fewer winners and also make fewer errors whilst the likes of Federer or Serena can hit up to twice the amount of winners and also produce a similar count of errors. Brings us to the all-important forced error stat which is so critical for a developing junior so that they can apply pressure and reduce risk. Concepts like the “winner to error ratio”, “forced error” and others such as the importance of the first point, grouping points and getting to 30 first are all taught at our tactical and mental squad at Stonnington Tennis on a weekly basis. We always hear that tennis matches are won and lost between points, so come along to Stonnington Tennis and be taught more than the physical aspect of tennis but the mental aspect too.

    3 Tips To Mastering A Slice Serve
    August 20, 2019
    The Slice Serve is an important shot for players to have in their tennis serve. The tennis slice serve is a very important shot that can effectively pull your opponent off the court and open up the court for you to start an offensive attack. The tennis slice serve is hit with sidespin. Tennis technique alone gives you just a rough movement that imparts sidespin on the ball but is still far away from serving accurate slice serves. To be able to hit an accurate slice serve, you need to use the right grip. Some players prefer to use the continental grip for an easy and natural slice serve. A strong and proper stance is vital for the perfect slice serve. To be able to perform it properly, you can make use of the net posts as your point of reference. Your body should face the right-hand net post if you are a right-handed player, and the opposite for the left side. The location of the toss for a tennis slice serve is different from other types of serves particularly with the flat serve or with the topspin serve, but the mechanics are similar. You have to hold the ball near the tips of your fingers. This is to ensure that there is no obstruction when you release the ball at the start of the ball toss. In a tennis slice serve, the ball is tossed slightly further to your right side (if you are a right-handed player) but remember not to overdo it! Start practising and let us know how your serves starting slicing now!
