Tennis Lessons for Beginners - Concentration and Equipment

Your concentration can be maintained by focusing on each single shot individually. Do not focus too much on missed opportunities and acknowledge good shots by your opponent (even if only in your mind!). Break the whole game down into little bits: concentrate on winning a shot, a game, a set, and ultimately the match. It is no use focusing all of your energy on making it big in tennis and all you can think about on the court is the nice restaurant you are going to afterwards, or even the screams from the avid spectators (hopefully for your superb tennis display!).

When buying tennis equipment, do not try to be too stingy. Get a decent tennis racquet, tennis shoes, and of course proper tennis balls. No use trying to play tennis with balls lacking a consistent and regular bounce. You would not believe the frustration of having to play with tennis balls' purchased at the local gas station. Also, do not use your quality tennis balls until they have lost all their hair - not all things get better with age (like wine)! I know decent tennis equipment can be pricy, but it is worth all your effort in the end.

When starting out with tennis as a beginner do not feel compelled to dress like a professional tennis player such as Roger Federer. On the other hand, do not play tennis in casual wear either. Dress according to the occasion and, in the case of tennis, dress comfortable to allow easy movement across the tennis court.
