How to beef up your game and discover your true potential by increasing your concentration, willpower and confidence Described by Billie Jean King as her ‘tennis bible’, Timothy Gallwey’s multi-million bestseller, including a new introduction from acclaimed sports psychologist Geoff Beattie, has been a phenomenon for players of all abilities since it was first published in 1972. Instead of concentrating on how to beef up your technique, it starts from the understanding that ‘every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game’. The former is played against opponents on the court, but the latter is a battle within ourselves as we try and overcome self-doubt and anxiety., It is continuously won or lost before a ball has been hit. Gallwey’s revolutionary approach, built on a foundation of Zen thinking and humanistic psychology, will teach you how to develop your concentration, work on your gamesmanship and assist you to break bad habits. You’ll also learn to agree with yourself on the court and how to take care of clarity of mind all through the match, giving you a clear psychological advantage over your opponent., Whether you are an amateur or a pro, The Inner Game of Tennis is very important reading for overcoming the self-doubt, nervousness, and lapses of concentration that can keep a player from winning. It is guaranteed to change the way you play tennis endlessly.
