Player Development​

Player Development

"We concentrate on long term player development with focus on physical literacy. Beside tennis improvement, our goal is to teach players important life skills such as discipline, focus, resilience, self-control and patience." 

At Process Tennis, we believe that a deliberate practice overseen by coaches on a daily basis is the best way to take your game to the next level. For that reason, we’ve created a place where players can train throughout the whole year and where we focus on the 5 main concepts of tennis development. 


1. Technique

Technically sound strokes are necessary for future success. Players need to be able to hit “any shot from anywhere” on court so they can be unpredictable for their opponents.

3. Fitness & Conditioning

Excellent technique and perfect strategy can only work as long as your body has enough energy. To be successful at higher level tournaments you need to be able to play a couple of matches each day. Therefore, we implement fitness drills to help you become faster and to build your stamina.

5. Data Analysis & Statistics

To get an edge over your opponents, we can offer a detailed match report made by Break2Win. Based on the statistics and date you will discover your favorite service spots; game patterns; and you can learn what areas of your game needs to be polished.

2. Tactics & Strategy

Even the best technique will not help when your shot selection is poor. We help you develop a clear game plan that will improve your shot execution during matches.

4. Mental Toughness & Resilience

You will never reach your true potential if you always “crack” under the pressure. We create a competitive environment and constantly challenge our players to help them being confident and to teach them how to deal with adversity and tight match situations.

“All coaching is, is taking a player where he can’t take himself.”

– Bill McCartney, Football

As a former professional player, I want to pass my experience on the young athletes. I believe that my story can inspire many junior players to keep dreaming and pursuing their goals. While success doesn’t come overnight, dreams can come true when you work hard and trust the process.
