A phenomenon when first published in 1972, the Inner Game was a real revelation. Instead of serving up technique, it concentrated on the fact that, as Gallwey wrote, "Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game." The former is played against opponents, and is filled with lots of contradictory advice; the latter is played not against, but within the mind of the player, and its principal obstacles are self-doubt and anxiety. Gallwey's revolutionary thinking, built on a foundation of Zen thinking and humanistic psychology, was really a primer on how to get out of your own way to let your best game emerge. It was sports psychology before the two words were pressed against each other and codified into an accepted discipline.
The new edition of this remarkable work--Billie Jean King called the original her tennis bible--refines Gallwey's theories on concentration, gamesmanship, breaking bad habits, learning to trust yourself on the court, and awareness. "No matter what a person's complaint when he has a lesson with me, I have found the most beneficial first step," he stressed, "is to encourage him to see and feel what he is doing--that is, to increase his awareness of what actually is."
There are aspects of psychobabble and mysticism to be found here, sure, but Gallwey instructs as much by anecdote as anything else, and time has ultimately proved him a guru. What seemed radical in the early '70s is now accepted ammunition for the canon; the right mental approach is every bit as important as a good backhand. The Inner Game of Tennis still does much to keep that idea in play. --Jeff Silverman
Sports Shooter Academy VII
A tennis player takes a moment to collect herself before a match April 9, 2010, at University of California, Irvine. The Sports Shooter Academy is a hands-on, shooting workshop where participants have the opportunity to cover real sports events under the guidance of a faculty of award-winning photojournalists. Participants cover up to 3 sports events a day, challenging themselves to go beyond the “usual” sports coverage, looking for unique angles, provocative details and storytelling images that go beyond the standard “peak action”. SSA VI participants check out Nikon equipment before heading out for a day of shooting. NCAA Division I sports are an important part of The Academy schedule, which also includes local professional and amateur sports like horse racing at historic Santa Anita Park, AVP beach volleyball, Olympic-style cycling and boxing. Each night participants review and receive critiques of their work with the faculty one-on-one, editing and selecting their best work to be displayed during the daily slideshows. All of this is done under deadline conditions. April 7-10, 2010. Orange County, CA.Tennis Ball Destruction
My dog destroying a tennis ball. Yes, I can see I need to trim his nails. A little post work on this, I desaturated the yellows a bit. I couldn't get decent while balance on this, and even on tungsten, it was a little yellow. I like the result.
