TOURNAMENT TRAINING PROGRAM

The Tournament Training Program is designed to cover the elements of competitive tennis training in order to reach maximum success in the USTA Junior Circuit and high school tennis team, while preparing the player for their college experience.

TTP will consist of intensive drills to simulate match-like situations, on-court problem solving and decision making. This is a blocked program consisting of multiple courts to enhance the student’s learning against a variety of players.  Strategy training helps develop and sharpen on-court tactics. Prepare your player for “match play pressure” to better understand competition and performance. We also encourage and sponsor our TTP players in USTA Junior sanctioned tournaments hosted at the Club.  Match play is included in your TTP program free of charge.
