Common Badminton Problems Which Can Be Overcome With Mental Training

Do you experience any of these?

  • Extreme nerves during matches / lack of belief in yourself
  • Playing great in practice, but lousy in tournament matches or competition
  • Practicing hard but getting no payback
  • Injuries or illnesses occurring just before tournament matches
  • Anger problems, racquet smashing, tanking matches etc.
  • Slumps in form
  • Regularly recurring problems on the court
  • Concentration and technical problems
  • Doubts, fears, worries and anxiety, worrying about what others think
  • Inconsistency in matches
  • Overly worrying about the “uncontrollable” such as which opponent you will be drawn to play.

The main reason for this is because your mind controls your body – not the other way around, and so most problems in tennis are simply due to the mind being untrained to perform correctly.

Self-sabotage is a common problem, as the pressure of competition often brings out problems which often do not exist in practice. Your mind either works for you, or against you, just depending upon how you’ve “programmed” it to perform.

Any player can dramatically improve their tournament results through using mental training. Consistency, belief and confidence are all best achieved through a regular mental training program, which only takes about 10 minutes. Here are some of the benefits of mental training.
