Partnering to prioritize the health and safety of our members and staff

Your health and safety is our priority! As you return to The Wembley Club to take part in your favorite activities, you can be sure that we’ve raised the standard by putting measures in place that in most cases exceed official guidelines to help keep you safe and healthy and give you more peace of mind. In addition to the guidelines we posted earlier this week, we have also partnered with Your Healthy Spaces to periodically disinfect all the surfaces at the club.

Your Healthy Spaces is an environmental solutions service company that utilizes electrostatic spraying with 360 degree coverage on all surfaces. They use environmentally green hospital grade disinfection solutions that eliminates all germs and pathogens and finally an antimicrobial protectant on all surfaces and high touch areas. This 30 day protectant is a game changer and prevents germs from re-attaching to surfaces. Your Healthy Spaces provides peace of mind and complete disinfection and protection for all who enter the Wembley Club.

5 Benefits of Barre Workouts

5 benefits of Barre workouts:

  1. Strength, definition, and elongated muscles are achieved through targeting muscle groups from all angles.  Barre focuses on muscles you use everyday, as well as, underused and underdeveloped muscled.
  2. Endurance is gained through a combination of isometric and isotonic movements.  Isometric movements, the poses you hold such as a plank.  Isotonic movements strengthen your cardiovascular system.
  3. Flexibility is gained throughout a barre class with fluid movement and stretching.  Increased flexibility helps in such areas as back pain.
  4. Posture is focused on throughout an entire barre class, core muscles are contracted throughout the class.  Stand taller and be proud!
  5. Mind-body connection is so important in our daily lives and is highly focused on in a barre routine.  Focusing on the body’s muscle and movement provides a more effective workout and balance heading into your day or evening.

Different Tennis Hitting Stances

There are a few different hitting stances when it comes to tennis. When a teaching pro introduces someone to tennis, they always start with turning the student sideways to hit the ball. This is the most basic way to hit a ball, mostly because you will have the most control hitting this way. This is called the “closed stance.” (pictured below; Ben with our tiny tots)

As players progress, hitting in the closed stance 100% of the time becomes more difficult. You will use the closed stance when you are moving forward into the court. Aside from that, if you are in a match and your opponent is hitting the ball very hard, there might not be enough time to turn sideways. So what do you do then? This is where the “semi-open” and “open” stances come into play.

Semi-Open Stance

The semi-open stance is used quite often in tennis. Most people do not have the time to get into a completely closed stance in the middle of a point because of how fast the game has become. In this day and age, tennis is so fast. People are hitting bigger and faster balls than they used to. With this, were have adjusted how we hit the ball. The semi-closed stance is one way. This stance gives you the balance needed to hit the ball, but also helps you adjust to speed of the balls coming.

Open Stance

The open stance should be a last resort. This stance should only be used when you are either on the run, or have a ball hit at you so fast that you cannot turn. It is very hard to be balanced when you hit with the open stance. Along with this, it is hard to fully use your hips to hit the ball.

In this YouTube video, Sherif gives a detailed analysis of the different tennis hitting stances. He talks about each stance, and when each one should be used.
