The Inner Game of Tennis - GALLWEY, W. Timothy

Jonathan Cape, 1983, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ - in Very Good+ DJ.

Tennis players great and small are prey to the maddening fate of playing well one day and miserably the next - of clamming up in competition for no apparent reason and throwing away easy shots. It happens when we least expect or want it to, and it seems the more effort spent in rectifying the situation, the worse it becomes. Gallwey maintains that the key to better tennis and the inner game is the subjugation of this ego-self which constantly tries to tell the unthinking, spontaneous player (the real expert) what it knows perfectly well how to do. Only when the mind is quiet can a player achieve a state of relaxed concentration in which the body finds its own means to surpass its own limitations. 144pp. Size: 4to Large Post (10½" x 8¼" approx.)
