Moving in tennis

It was a beautiful day for doubles in tennis.

This week in tennis practice, Namine’s coaches continued their emphasis on practicing movement. Namine started out with warming up with some forehand and backhand, with which she’s more than comfortable with. She then paired up with another player to practice returns while moving forward.

Two coaches also paired up with Namine and her practice mate to play a game of doubles. At this point in practice, I would normally have joined and been Namine’s teammate, but we forgot our rackets this week. The tennis coach had a loaner for Namine to use, thankfully.

While Namine is loving the return to tennis, she’s still keeping her face mask on because COVID-19 is definitely still present. It certainly makes things more difficult, so it’s important to take breaks and stay hydrated.
