This series is for anyone who wishes to raise their compete level. A lifelong player and coach, Mr. Coles features easy to digest tips and strategies to help keen recreational competitors play smarter. Improving stroke technique certainly helps but that requires a great deal of deliberate practice. A quicker way is to sharpen tactical skills whilst still using the strokes you've already got! He will cover topics often overlooked or even glossed over in on court instruction when hitting lots of balls is what is appreciated most.
In Part 8, “Be Your Own Spin Doctor! - Develop a Winning Mentality!", Coach Adrian talks about the importance of taking positives from a loss and the importance of not allowing negative thoughts and emotions to hold you back. Everyone makes errors in a match, but Coach Coles encourages players to learn from their mistakes; to “budget” their errors in future matches and to set aside extra time for “deliberate practice” between competitions. These important tips, if followed, are sure to make you a better competitive player!
