Scott Dunlop: Active Groups

One of the great ways to contribute to the tennis community is to organise a group on Juump. You can decide what kind of interests and occasions you want to foster and invite people to join. You can create groups that are private, which can only be viewed by its members, groups that require the organizer’s approval or completely open groups. Members can post on a wall or message each other to arrange times to get together. Updates on the wall go directly to the member’s email. Groups can be located at any court or courts of your choice.

Some wonderful groups are thriving. Check out the action in the “Commercial Drive Club” and “Kits…Twenty Somethings” on the Groups page in Vancouver.  If you’ve ever thought that tennis could be organised better or played in a special way ….you can give it a whirl. Just go to the Groups Page and hit the “Add Group” button at the bottom of the page.

Update on UK Tennis Situation with Master Louis Cayer

I would like to share a mindset I instil in all the players I coach, one I believe has greatly influenced all of the player’s performances; “whatever happens, I can handle it.” This mindset is achieved through a systematic, tactical development process, so that whoever the opponent, whatever the surface, regardless of the environment, or scoring, the players can, and will rise to the challenge as it is presented.
