No. 2 Goal Setting
Research has shown that setting specific goals increase a player’s confidence.
– To determine what’s important for the player
– To maintain and reinforce motivation
– To increase persistence and effort
– To direct attention to aspects which are important to improve performance
– To ensure more productive use of time and
– To reinforce self-confidence when reaching your goal.
If you wish to plan the best way ahead for YOUR TENNIS come along and work with a top sports psychologist on Monday, November 12th at 6.30pm… it may change the way you think and feel about the game!
Age group 10 -16 years.
“This is part of a lecture series on various topics held throughout the year by Naas LTC run by a top sports psychologist to help YOU with the mental side of your game. We tend to do a lot with the technical, tactical, physical aspects of the game on-court. We now offer you the chance to improve your mental skills.” Jonathan Coulston, Head Coach
This lecture is sponsored by the Junior Committee. Admission Free.
Places are limited so book your place on-line now.
Just a quick update to let you know that Teenage Social Tennis on Friday nights is taking a well deserved holiday for two weeks. We are taking Friday the 26th of October and Friday the 2nd of November off for the U9s/U11s Open and Mid-Term. We hope to see you all on Friday the 9th of November for more Teenage Social Tennis.
Enjoy Mid-Term and Halloween!!!

On line registration is now available via the Tennis Ireland site on this link .
This is the first of what will hopefully be many ‘Junior Captains Blog’ posts, which aim to keep juniors in touch with what is going on in the club. We hope to use this blog to update you regularly on upcoming events, junior issues and junior news.
The first event we hope to run is ‘Teenage Social Tennis’ which will be on Fridays from 18:15 to 20:00, starting this Friday 28th of September. This night is for all juniors currently in secondary school. The night will involve an hour of Cardio Type Tennis, run by Janeen with pizza in the Junior Clubhouse afterwards. Hopefully juniors can use the night to have fun and meet up with other teenagers. The night will cost €3 per teenager (to cover the lights and your pizza!).
All you have to do is sign up online here before Friday.
That’s all for now, hope to see ye all on Friday.
