It’s one month in to 2019 and tennis players in the Mid-Atlantic are counting down the days until the spring adult tennis leagues get underway in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C.
Spring is generally when some of the most popular league divisions play with many advancing to Mid-Atlantic Regional and Sectional tennis championships. Thousands of people join league tennis play in the spring. It is an exciting time as the snow melts, flowers bloom and tennis players get back out on the courts.
While many of us sit and pine for the days of spring when our calendars are packed with tennis matches, let’s not waste this little bit of downtime to get prepared for the season ahead.
USTA Mid-Atlantic wants to help you “gear up” for the spring tennis season. We’ve put together a series of articles that you’ll find here on the Tennis on Point blog in the Tips and Tricks category that will help get you ready.
The “Gearing Up” series will cover topics such as:
- The top questions players have about playing leagues – for both the seasoned player and someone returning after a break from the sport;
- Getting in shape physically and mentally so you are ready for tough athletic matches with the right fitness and mindset;
- And of course we’ll touch on some gear that you may want to have on the court with you this year.
