If the U.S. Open has gotten you in a tennis
frame of mind, you might want to head down to the Wild Dunes Resort in Isle of Palms, South Carolina
to practice your skills. Wild Dunes has been listed at some of the top tennis resorts
by Tennis magazine. The instruction is led by Charly Rasheed, the resort's Director of Tennis. He has written a book "Brain Alignment: The Art
of Focus in Tennis." Beginning September 8, new instructional tennis packages available at the Resort include "Focus for Results" and "Fall Group Stay, Focus on Play," with each including a complimentary signed copy of Brain Alignment: The Art of Focus in Tennis authored by Rasheed. "Focus for Results" is ideal for an individual or couple looking to improve their game while "Fall Group Stay, Focus on Play" completes the ultimate tennis getaway for groups. The resort has 17 Har-Tru courts, including a stadium court, with five of the courts lit for night play. Guests also have access to a full-service pro shop and a top-ranked teaching program.
Rasheed and his team instruct players on the philosophy of brain alignment and how it relates to the sport of tennis. "My theory and how it applies to philosophy of brain alignment suggests that in a competitive arena, such as tennis, we are two selves," said Rasheed. "We are the logical self and the athletic self. Understanding and harnessing these two selves is central to improving an individual's game." Visit Wild Dunes Resort's website to view footage
of Rasheed teaching the fundamentals of the service toss and doubles strategy.
There's more to do than just tennis at Wild Dunes. The resort also has championship golf
, a spa and of course, beautiful dunes.
