The tennis season (outdour) is coming to an end, should I focus on training for the spring season or should I play 1 or 2 indoor HC tournaments?

Train to keep in shape and work on areas of your game that need it.

Play a few tournies to keep your game sharp and stay somewhat fresh on "match" play.

...and do something else. In the winter, I play a little tennis, whenever the weather is decent in Colorado, but mostly I spend the winter training and ski racing. That keeps me in shape, and in the spring, I've had a nice break from tennis, so I'm rarin' to hit the courts...

Depends. I like to continue playing all year, to keep my strokes and match play in form, but mostly because I just can't get enough of tennis.

Though, if I could ski in the off-season that would be an acceptable trade-off! :mrgreen:

Move to Southern California or Florida, tennis is life.

It's already about 35 degrees Fahrenheit over here. Anyway, I'm still going to play some tennis today I guess :D, but for the winter I'll do one or two tournaments and after that I'm just going to prepare for 2011.

OR move to SC where we play all year round!:twisted: I couldn't resist!

That might be an option :D, My club do has 3 indoor hc courts but I have to pay about 550$ per court/hour for the entire winter.

What is winter?

Winter is for working on a new element of your game. Last couple of years for me it was the serve and volley.

This year I am changing my serving motion away from sliding the backfoot forward to a platform stance (save on shoes). Also, I trying to improve my flat-slice approach shot.

It is nice to show up in the spring with new weapons to show your friends.
