Fitness For Life – Tennis Anyone?- DEC 06, 2017

Tennis is an Olympic sport, and is played at all levels of society and at all ages. Anyone who can hold a racket, including wheelchair users, can play.
The modern game of tennis originated in Birmingham, England, in the late 19th century. Today, tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world, whereas 50 years ago there were countries where it was not played at all. Nowadays, some of the world’s top players are growing up in those countries.
Professional tennis these days is very competitive. Winning matches at the highest international levels is more challenging than ever before.
A major advantage of tennis is that anyone can play it. Players start as young as age 4 and many continue well into their senior years. Young players tend to acquire tennis skills quickly, and may one day have to decide where tennis fits in their future. Do they want to go on a professional tour, travel, and explore new countries and cultures? Do they believe in their potential to fight and become one of the best tennis players in the world? Or do they just want to play tennis for fun?
Tennis is a great form of exercise and relaxation, whether you prefer being outdoors in the fresh air or at an indoor fitness center. It’s a combination of exercise with a fun game. Regular training improves your game and tennis becomes addictive.
I started play tennis at the age of 7 and it has influenced my whole life. Thanks to international tennis tournaments, I was able to travel a lot and get to know people from different parts of the world. I also learned new things from them. I enjoyed playing, but realized there could be much more fulfillment from the tennis experience in passing it on. So I started to coach tennis players.
I have had 15 years of coaching experience, with all ages and levels of tennis players in the United States as well as Europe.
In 2007, I founded the Tennis Academy PTA Kolin in the Czech Republic, which currently has 140 members and employs seven tennis coaches. I also established Tennis Club PTA Kolín, which today represents a team of juniors and adults. I managed the entire tennis facility that my investor and client had built for the academy. It was a new challenge.
Earlier this year, I moved to Costa Rica with my family. One reason I chose Costa Rica was that — with the exception of San José — tennis is not widespread here. I’ve taken on the challenge of contributing to the expansion of the sport in this beautiful country. I would like to provide my services not only to tourists and residents, but also to local Ticos. Some day, it would be nice to see some world tour tennis players from Costa Rica.
