- The best time for time
for improvement is generally during the off season (Oct. – Feb. for most
players in Australia).
As most/all players are more motivated to play more often during the
competition year, the one’s who either keep playing each week during the
off season or play even more than during the season usually have a
distinct advantage the following year or over a period of a few years if
keep repeating this process.
- We are what we repeatedly
do! Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit – practise makes perfect.
- Players have a
higher chance of improving more in future if, increase the amount of
weekly hours played each year.
- There can be
many up and downs re emotions through one match let alone one day, week,
month, year and career. It’s how we deal with the down times, together
with playing more hours each week that can make the difference of
achieving a better result/standard at the time/in future.
- As Table
Tennis is a high skill game, it requires constant practise and attention
to detail on strokes & movements to keep improving, players should not
take much of a break during the off season.
- To reach higher levels in
future, players should focus on improving their techniques for all
skills/shots and routines that will help them achieve this.
