Our teaching philosophy applies the laws of physics to the dimensions of the tennis court. Our techniques eliminate wasted motion to produce more efficient strokes. We are particularly proud to be one of the very few teaching programs in the United States where all of our pros use the same science-based approach. Watch our video to learn more.
Many programs claim to offer the “best and greatest.” Easy to say…not easy to back up. This is why we have adopted tennis hall of famer, Vic Braden’s 55 years of research as our standard.
