Lockdown 2

25th Nov, 2020

Tennis training in Lockdown 2 is not allowed, all clubs and courts are locked and closed. This is a little frustrating as my training was going well and in Competitions from Sept /October I have managed to moved my GB ranking from a frozen 66 U16 in March to 35 GB in November. In real terms too in my age group I am now currently GB no 14. Now though having to find other ways to keep physical. Walking the dog I do sprints and pull ups on the footy net bars. I have home gym sessions covering core, shoulder injury prevention and stamina on my new Peleton Bike. I join zoom calls with my team at Edgbaston Priory and we plan for mental, tactical play and getting ready to return. I still have to go to school too so studying is a big part at the moment
