Tennis is a sport played either between two players (singles) or between two teams of two players each (doubles). A common misconception is that tennis is an individual sport. In reality it is a team sport like any other. Team work and team spirit are essential in helping a tennis player reach his fullest potential. It is a game that requires physical as well as mental endurance. In Nanyang Junior College, no prior experience is required in order for one to join tennis.
Court training for the team is on Monday from 5.30pm to 8pm and Wednesday from 2.30pm-6.30pm. Besides the National School Games ‘A’ Division championships, our team also takes part in friendly matches. From these matches, we are able to understand our weaknesses and learn from our opponents’ strengths, enabling us to play better.
We also have an annual tennis camp which aims to prepare for the National School Games Championships. During the camp, we undergo physical training and court training to strengthen our physical endurance, technical and tactical skills.
