Evolve with Your Tennis

Jose Benjumea is a PTR certified tennis professional who has been a tennis teaching professional since 1974.  At the urging of his students and through many years of tennis instruction, researching and compiling successful strategies for the court, Jose has taken the plunge to connect to recreational players from 2.0 to 5.0 on-line.

3 Types of Doubles Players – Who are You?

1. “THOSE WHO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN”
2. “THOSE WHO WATCH WHAT HAPPENS”
3. “THOSE WHO WONDER WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED”

We can all develop the skills and mindset of the doubles players “WHO MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.” And, if you’re already in the first category, well, there is always room for upgrades. It is to this end that I have devoted myself to make iclicktennis.com the website of tennis instruction to go to to help you grow, evolve, and transform your game and mindset. Change is that constant in our lives which nudges us to keep on learning and adapting. Let’s do it!

Throughout the course of our tennis journey, [...]

To the Net or Not – “7 Shades Green”

" Fools Rush in Where Angels Fear to Tread. " --- Alexander Pope Do I or don't I? Should I or shouldn't I? I guess it's time. It feels right, I'm going for it!  Or, no, I'm not going to the net, I might get lobbed, my volley isn't good enough, my approach shot is awful. [...]
