about the course

Most people acknowledge the effect that nutrition can have on performance, but so many tennis players are getting it wrong! Not eating or drinking the right things on the court, running out of gas in the third set, not recovering properly between matches, and cramping that could have been prevented by proper electrolyte intake. 

 

I am a sports dietitian who currently works with a number of high-level tennis players including Grand Slam winners as well as up and coming pros and collegiate players.  Having also spent time as a college tennis coach, I know that getting players to buy-in to new ideas can be a major challenge. I also know that budget plays a role in the foods coaches can provide for players as well as in the choices players make on their own. With all of that in mind, this course was set up to offer cost-effective and easy to implement information.

 

Years of both research and practical experience in tennis have allowed me to create a course that offers coaches and players an understanding of the key sports nutrition concepts in a format that is easy to follow. Topics are broken down into short modules that can be viewed over a period of days or weeks, and you won’t need a nutrition degree to understand it and take away helpful information that will improve your results. 

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for players, parents, and coaches who want to use the power of nutrition to improve tennis performance. No prior nutrition knowledge is needed. The content in this course is aimed at the competitive tennis player, and may not be as applicable to people that are not playing and practicing at high intensities.

Chandrakant Devani
Php Professional Developer & Teacher

I am a programmer with over 30 years' experience gained in a range of industries, the last 16 with IBM.

I am now self employed developing apps for Android; programming in a range of languages including Java, Javascript and Python; and helping the next generation of programmers gain the skills that I have acquired over the years.

The first program I sold controlled stock movement in a warehouse, and ran on a CP/M computer - both the program and operating system lived in the 64 kb (yes, kilobytes) that was all CP/M systems had in those days.

I have gained experience in a wide range of industries including Utilities, Retail, Insurance and the Motor Manufacturing industry. My clients and employers have included Northumbrian Water, Arcadia, Royal Sun Alliance, Nissan and Jaguar Landrover. I also worked for Sunderland University for 3 years preparing and delivering training courses in computing.

Times have changed, the challenges are very different to what they were, but programming remains fun!

When not at my computer, I am often riding my motorbike through the wonderful countryside of the UK and Europe.
