What is this day?
February 17th 2021 denotes the Inaugural National Tennis Pros Day!
Avid tennis players love our tennis pros. They bring & instill in us the complete joy of tennis. Tennis players from beginners to professionals can’t live without them!
Tennis Pro’s to be honored today include the tennis pros who work hard with recreational tennis players.
Even though recreational players are never going to be anywhere near the best players in the world, these pros still give us their complete attention, coaching, working through the emotional & mental part of their players last match as if we were aspiring to be Roger Federer.
Speaking of Federer, he sums it up perfectly in this quote about his coach Severin Luthi, “He’s really valuable to me. He knows my game really well, he knows my practice sessions very well. He knows what I need to work on. He knows what makes me happy and sad.”.
Thank you to our Tennis Pros everywhere, you not only make us better players, you make us so happy too!
Enjoy your National Tennis Pro Day!
Who created this day? This day was created by Maria Oddy in 2020 as a nod of much appreciation to the Tennis Pros in her world.
