Practice Notes: The Power of 1% Daily Growth

Embrace the philosophy of 1% daily growth in your tennis journey. It's about the commitment to making small, incremental improvements each day. Just imagine—enhancing your serve, refining your backhand, or improving your footwork by just 1% daily. These tiny advancements compound over time, and while the progress each day may seem modest, the cumulative effect is anything but. By the end of a year, this approach doesn't just add up; it multiplies, potentially leading to a 37-fold improvement in your game. This section of our Quick Guide is dedicated to helping you achieve consistent, sustainable growth. Whether it’s through practice routines, skill drills, or mental strategies, focus on that 1% improvement every time you hit the court. Let's turn those marginal gains into game-changing results.

Budget-Friendly Coaching Tips

Parent/Child Coaching Sessions Ask your local coach if they're open to doing a joint coaching session. It's what I did to help my son learn and grow. As your child learns, so can you—making for invaluable bonding and learning together. Tip! Take notes and work on skill development with your kid between coached lessons. Remember to have fun in the process or you kid and you will not want to stick with it!

The 30-Day Challenge Create your own challenge to get on a good practice and match streak. We made our own checklist to go on the door and checked it off daily prior to my son's Freshman year. We included a small workout and play time for each day. We continued on for 90 days and he made the team his first year. Since then, we've now created a 60 SMASH challenge. I'll share that soon.

Ace Your Potential.

Watch out for tennis elbow—it's a common but serious injury. It took me out for nearly 6 months when I first started playing with my son.

Your Guide, Crafted by Zack Swire

As a dad and an avid supporter of tennis in our local schools and community, I've experienced firsthand the challenges and joys of navigating the world of tennis. But my love for tennis – and my belief in its value for players of all ages – runs deep. I've created this guide to share the insights I've gained, aiming to make it simpler for everyone in our area to connect with the sport. And this is just the beginning. I'm working hard to develop Glendora Tennis Club into a full-fledged resource – one that champions our sport and provides valuable support to our school athletes and the entire tennis community. Whether you’re just starting or seeking to refine your game, stay tuned. We’re building something special here, a place where our shared passion for tennis is celebrated and cultivated every day.
