“ExpoTennis is about giving back.” Stewart Whicker
We wanted to create a way to inspire people to play tennis and raise money for charity at the same time, ExpoTennis is the perfect platform to do just that.
Before there was professional tennis top Australian amateur players like Lew Hoad, Rod Laver, John Newcombe, Tony Roche and many more put on exhibition matches around Australia to promote tennis as a great sport to play.
said it was the ability by others to nurture the underlying greatness in us all, without others then greatness would never be recognised nor appreciated so other people must play a lead role in the development of observable greatness.
I am going to relate this article to the sport of tennis but it could be related to every other aspect of life.
As with all observable greatness it is the power by the individual to move our emotions that intrigues us and keeps us coming back for more.
The dominance by the tennis player, the comeback from nowhere are all part of the excitement of the game.
The game plan to nurture a champion –
My role is to observe failure and the reaction to failure by the athlete and the people around them. The reaction to failure is one of the keys to success, react the wrong way and you will not learn, react the right way and you will grow and become stronger.
Observe and recognise mental, physical and technical failures and work on those areas of failure to make them stronger.
Drawing large crowds at local tennis clubs, the feeling of community would have been truly inspiring.
If you would like to use the idea of ExpoTennis at a Centre or Club near you, please get in touch.
