Happy VE Day!
As we await an ease on the lockdown restrictions we've been finding out what our coaches have been up to over the past 8 weeks...
"It's been challenging to suddenly have your whole lifestyle turned on it's head overnight. It has, however, been a time to rest, reflect and try to think about other things beyond tennis for a while. I have tried to have a routine by keeping active by doing daily online yoga and Pilates; and this has really helped for well being. I have discovered Netflix and ZOOM video meetings! The time has also been a great opportunity to do some DIY and gardening especially with the weather being so good. The vitamin D boost has been very welcome!
I do however miss the interaction with members and the on court coaching I provide to them on a daily basis. I look forward to seeing you all on the court as soon as we are allowed to do so" 🙂
"Hope all members are bearing up OK. Thank goodness for the decent weather. For me a daily treat must be the dog walk. Am hearing no complaints about the shut down from these quarters. Miss seeing my many friends within the club's membership. Stay healthy and look forward to sharing a court (albeit at 2m apart) with members soon."
I have spent most days during lockdown walking my dog, maintaining my fitness and talking to friends all over the world.
I look forward to getting back on court when it is safe to do so.
"I've been keeping positive in the time off, not trying to think too far ahead, staying in the moment and enjoying time with my family.
I've been able to rest a few recent niggles i'd picked up and ultimately tried to make the best of a challenging situation where possible!
I'm looking forward to seeing all of the friendly faces at the club I've missed over the last couple of months and getting back on court soon"
"I'm doing well thank you. I've got a little one to keep me busy, potty training has gone well, haha (for the most part anyway!) A few days have been a struggle, like most people, but in general doing well."
Thank you Sarah and all of the members!
We are thrilled to hear that our coaches are finding 'new' things to keep them busy during the lockdown.
We also want to take this time to send out a huge 'thank you' to you, our members, for your continued loyalty to club. Our membership levels have remained steady and we will be ready to open the courts as soon as the government and the LTA give us the go ahead.
In the meantime, stay home and stay safe!
