VOSLOORUS KIDS HAVE EXTRA TRAINING

VOSLOORUS KIDS HAVE EXTRA TRAINING

In order to give the Vosloorus development players a more varied training program, they were taken to the Game, Set and Match Academy run by Carla Farina in Johannesburg. The object was to expose them to different training methods with the emphasis on fitness and agility more than actual playing. There was a mix of some better players as well as younger players who have recently joined the program.

Carla had them, almost literally, jumping through hoops as well as ladder drills and wind sprints. “I honestly think I had more fun than they did” said Carla afterwards. “The level of the love of the game and the enthusiasm these children have is unrivalled and I hope their passion for the sport and tennis continues to grow.”

After the fitness training Carla put them through some on court drills and towards the end they did play tennis! This is an aspect that we would like to continue on a regular basis so that they level of fitness improves through this extra training and it is hoped that further sessions will be arranged.

It is imperative that for their tennis and overall education, they become exposed to different techniques from a coaching point of view as well as inter acting with other children outside of the own program.

The next level will be the mini tournaments in and around the Johannesburg area especially for those who are now ready to start playing at that level.
