I soon realised that playing competitive tennis is stressful, technical and tactical and requires the right mental setup. It is not only hitting a ball with a racket!
My journey with LTL started a few years ago; I was looking to play competitive tennis after a few years of training and getting familiar with the sport which I loved, since the first day I held a racket.
I joined LTL in Hammersmith & Fulham and played my first competitive game in Hurlingham Park. I soon realised that playing competitive tennis is stressful, technical and tactical and requires the right mental setup. It is not only hitting a ball with a racket! All my years of practicing, banished, and I ended up losing my first match 6-0 6-0.
That didn't stop me and I continued playing, I even moved to Wimbledon! I joined LTL Wimbledon Park which is an amazing place for tennis and during 2020 I manged to beat all the players in my group.
I would recommend people to join LTL as it is the best platform to start competitive tennis. It is also very social and you’re able to meet other tennis players in your area. It helps you to get to know your level and play against opponents with different tennis skillsets.
I hope you guys enjoy LTL as much as I do and keep playing tennis as much as possible, when the time comes.
