Thirty30 Tennis Blog - LinkedIn Article - 7 Reasons Why Kids Should Play Tennis

Updated: Nov 26, 2019

An article ‘7 Reasons Why Kids Should Play Tennis’ was published recently on LinkedIn by Ralph de Geus, Amsterdam, Netherlands.

It is one of the best tennis articles that I have read for a long time and is well worth a read.

The article starts:

“In my family everyone plays tennis. For over 60 years my father was addicted to tennis, my sister and mother used to play and many friends too, with me it is no different.

Since I was 5 year I fell in love with this sport. After 42 year I’m still playing tennis. In that time I learned a lot through tennis. I went through each stage of my life playing tennis and this contributed absolutely to the person I am today.

So I decided to share what I’ve learned in 42 years of tennis that helped me become a better person. So maybe I can inspire your boy or girl to start playing tennis as well.”

“The life lessons I've learned in tennis, I will take with me the rest of my life” are:

(1) To be successful.

(2) You are your worst enemy.

(3) Never ever give up.

(4) How to work under pressure.

(5) The mind is everything.

(6) You have second opportunities.

(7) Learn to lose.

Thirty30 (T30) can be described as the tennis equivalent of cricket’s faster more exciting Twenty20 (T20) format.

Thirty30 tennis produces shorter more dynamic matches that still FEEL, LOOK and SOUND like traditional tennis.
