We are great fans of Dr Carol Dweck and Angela Duckwork who have written brilliant books on Mindset and Grit. These are very much part of our Culture. Tennis is such a mental game and this needs to be developed just like technique and worked on day in day out. Historically we have been an outdoor venue and have played (almost!) whatever the weather throws at us! This has helped us develop a culture of toughness, grit, determination and resilience. All great attributes for our players to have. The days where it’s cold, it’s windy are the times when grit and a growth mindset are made. Grit is not made through comfort and you don’t grow through everything coming easy. Even though in November 2020 our indoor centre opens our values and culture will remain the same, we will still go out running in the rain and play out in the cold because that’s what makes us tougher than the rest.
We don’t pretend to be sport psychologists – we are tennis coaches but we are coaches who have a keen interest in this aspect of tennis. We read A LOT and try and instil in our players all the great things we have learnt which will help them in their journey to becoming better athletes. As we are lucky enough to be part of York St John University we have links with our Sport Psychology department who help our players on and off the court.
We talk a lot about creating Good Habits with our players (Atomic Habits by James Clear is a brilliant book) and discipline encouraging them to keep a Habit Tracker.
We demand 100% commitment from our players but in return we are 100% committed to being the BEST coaches we can be in order to make them THE BEST players and people they can be. We are all learning (players and coaches alike) and are constantly striving for ways to keep improving.
Here is a bunch of books we loved so can highly recommend them. I’d encourage you to read them ALL!
