Michelle, Singapore5 years ago Comments: The amount of tennis balls are just so pathetic. Most of the tennis balls we currently have are all the balls that Coach Richard picked up the discard tennis ball from public tennis court during the holiday. Imagine if Coach Richard did not picked up those discard tennis ball from public tennis court I do not think we even have any balls to hit and train now. POL-ITE is just next week and with the bad quality and pathetic amount of tennis balls we have, how are suppose to train and improve ourselves Let alone getting good results from the competition. I hope OSG will be more supportive and release the new tennis balls to us so as we can able to train well.
Eilene, Singapore5 years ago Comments: We need new tennis balls please! We cannot train using the current tennis balls with no bounce in them at all. With such quality tennis balls, it is going to be very difficult for the participants competing in POLITE as they are using new balls and will have to get used to the characteristics of the new balls because they are too used to training with the old tennis balls provided which have no bounce at all. Furthermore, with these few numbers of tennis balls and so many players, it is difficult to train as we will end up spending most of the training time picking up the balls instead of training out mechanics. This way, we will never improve! In addition, we are there to learn how to play tennis well, not to be a ball picker! Therefore, I would greatly appreciate it if new balls are to be released to the Tennis IG to practice and further improve ourselves.
