According to the Hong Kong Sports Institute, tennis has regained its status as a tier A elite sport in Hong Kong in 2015. However, not every kid in Hong Kong has the chance to get to know tennis due to limited space and the lack of complimentary coaching opportunities. To further expose the Hong Kong community to this beautiful sport, Hong Kong Golf & Tennis Academy Foundation (HKGTA Foundation) will be hosting a lively sports wellness-themed session focusing on stretching and tennis, ideal for mums, dads and little ones!
The Session, to be held on Sunday, 26 April, from 2pm to 4pm, will be dedicated to giving families insider tips on keeping themselves healthy and happy through tennis and stretching.
STRETCH YOUR LIMITS!
This interactive Session will kick off with a short presentation by experienced stretch Therapist Kevin Choy, from the extremely popular Joint Dynamics (www.jointdynamics.com.hk) team in Central. Kevin will enlighten us on the secrets of stretch therapy and the multiple benefits of stretching which include: increased mobility, stress release, pain relief (especially for the neck and lower back) and improved posture. Kevin works with a wide range of people, from athletes to office workers, who have reaped the benefits of stretching in their lives every day.
The session will also feature Alex Hose, a founding member of the Joint Dynamics team and a rehabilitation trainer with over 10 years of experience who will focus on mobility and movement.
Dealing with all ages and abilities in his work during this session, Alex will demonstrate the science of strength training, as well as the latest science in movement that is promised to enhance our lives.
