This blog and the philosophy behind it is our base for coaching tennis (www.tms-tennis.de). But where do we come from?
The starting point was the book Inner Game in tennis by Timothy Gallwey, first published in 1974. In this book he describes a way of learning influenced by far eastern philosophies such as ZEN. Much of Gallwey’s approach and publications that linked Zen Buddhism to motor learning can now be found in scientific motor learning studies. Brain research also takes up many of these approaches and confirms their relevance for learning.
Time for a return. The reason for this is our annual coach meets coach. This time it is all about the mental area in the practical part: integrated mental training, training with girls‘ groups U18, training with „difficult groups“ and inner game.
