Tennis – A Lesson for Life

Tennis Cancer munch 2019 coin toss

If you’re looking to introduce your child to a sport, tennis is a great option on many levels. It’s equally mental as it is physical, therefore promoting both strong psychological and physiological development. It’s also good for the body and mind. You can play tennis forever!

Tennis is great for all ages. Children can start very young, often as early as three years old, and you can play until you can no longer walk. People lucky enough to live past 100 years of age, can still play the game. What other sport can you play from age 3-103? Tennis!

Tennis also fosters social skills. Children learn about the importance of teamwork when playing doubles, and benefit from necessary communication with singles opponents before, during, and after matches.

Lessons for Life

From a psychological standpoint, children who play tennis develop skills and strategies that will also serve them well in life off the court. Because they’re out there on their own, and often calling their own lines while competing, children learn to accept responsibility for their actions, decisions and mistakes, and can begin to manage these more effectively.

They must learn to respond to adversity, adapt to different situations and environments. Both in practice and competitive environments, tennis fosters work ethic, discipline, and sportsmanship in children, and hones their strategic and problem-solving skills. It’s actually affordable! The Milton Ulladulla District Tennis Club are extremely proud to offer this great sport at a very affordable price.

As a junior member, you are allowed to play on the courts for free with one friend or adult as long as the court is not hired by paying players. With twelve courts at the Ulladulla complex, there are always plenty of courts for all. Junior competitions cost only $5 per week to play. Hotshots is $10 for an hour within a group coach setting on Saturday mornings. Senior members have lots of competitions and social groups also from as little as $5 (Tuesday morning group etc.).

As you can see by the photos, tennis is the sport for life in so many ways; playing, socialising and having fun doing both together and fundraising for charities. New Junior competition starts on Saturday 19 October 2019. Coach Kev is currently taking names for this new competition, so if you would like to play or make inquiries, please contact Kev on 0417 359 721.

Come and join the other forty to fifty kids having lots of fun on Saturday mornings for just $5 per week once a member. To improve your game of tennis playing in a competition, give Kev a call.
