Well, its the new year and I am ready for it. Training has gone well over the holidays and I am feeling confident in my game and am hoping to improve my win/loss ratio this year, as well as get a tennis rating of Orange 1 before becoming a green player.
I have applied for 3 tennis competitions in January and they are:-
South Ribble Tennis Centre on the 15th, my application has been approved so I will be playing next weekend. I have been there a couple of times before, but the experiences have been totally different so I don't know what to expect. All I can do is turn up and try to play my best tennis.
The next is at Birchwood Tennis Centre on the 22nd, my entry has not been approved yet but I should find out on the 15th (I think). This is a Cheshire grade 4 competition so if I can compete I will have to play well.
And the last one for January is at Manchester Tennis Centre on the 29th, my entry has been approved so I will be playing. I have played at Manchester Tennis Centre before and last time the competitors were grouped with players of the same rating. If they do the same again this could be good because if I win any matches they will count towards my rating and it could do with a boost. I am still a long way off becoming an Orange 1.
