ONcourt: Parents are often unaware that their sons or daughters are following a specific curriculum for their development over an annual period. Understanding the basic principles of periodization is essential in developing training sessions which maximize the practices of the players. This type of planning and management is essential in giving order to the over 35 weeks of winter training intertwined with a variety of competitions, which have various levels of importance. The management of such a plan is essential to maximizing the development opportunities for all players.

This past week in the World Team Tennis ‘Bubble” I have seen the efforts to keep everyone safe while carrying on a team competition with around 60/70 players and coaches onsite. Counting organizers, officials, media, and support personnel are around 150 people trying hard to make this happen. I am very impressed by how the strict protocol has been handled and how everyone is invested in making this event a success, but The Open is a completely different scale of details.
