Re:Social Tennis Events for Fun time for Mixed Doubles Group for Atul Gurjar
Two thoughts came to mind immediately.
First, Mixed Doubles competition with the men playing only with their
non-dominant hand. Whatever frustration the men may have is more than
compensated for by the exhilaration of the ladies. Often ladies who
infrequently or never win or feel competitive find success against their male
counterparts. To speed things along play 11 or 15 point sets, winner is first
team to get to 11 or 15 first. This keeps your players moving, courts busy
and is a fun event.
Second, if your budget permits or you have enough time to contact your local
PRINCE, WILSON, DUNLOP, etc representative, set aside one court for target
tennis. Use ball cans as targets. Group several together for a larger target.
Put a piece of paper under can(s) describing prize won if that particular can
is hit. Prizes do not have to be expensive; wrist bands, head bands, rubber
bands( i.e. gag prizes are also good), one tennis ball(i.e. another gag
gift), round trip ticket by bus to local imbibing establishment(i.e. yup, gag
gift), etc You get the idea. Free 1/2 hour private lesson, group series of
lessons, etc can also be used as prizes. Put a 2' by 3' posterboard on an
easel for winners/their prizes to be tallied for all to see.
Target tennis can be done off ball machine feeds or if no ball machine, have
teaching pro(s), assistant pro(s) feed balls.
Hope this helps.
