Optimize your tennis

Scouting. The HEAD-MAN scans the current situation of a tennis-player. All tennis-specifics like technics, physical constitution and condition, strategy, mental capacities as well as personality, family, school and time management, strengths and weaknesses are getting analyzed.

On the basis of this scan, the HEAD-MAN helps you…

  • make corrections in all the relevant areas
  • define goals
  • work more systematic, goal-oriented and motivated
  • get a manageable, sold plan
  • optional: Match-analysis and discussion

Junior academy. Clubs and tennis-schools are doing a good job serving tennis on club- and hobby-level. But extra ordinarily talented, motivated and competitive players do not receive the attention they deserve and need, because most of the above are mass and money oriented. But what they need the most is: Quality! No wonder, that unfortunately, the most talented and motivated kids sooner or later quit Tennis!

So the HEAD-MAN Tennis Academy serves…

  • Quality for quality-demanding, ambitious juniors
  • Training, which includes all relevant aspects (technic, strategy, physical condition, mental strength)
  • individuality
  • decades of coaching experience on a world class level
  • enduring, longterm goal- setting and work

Tennis-tuning. Sometimes, all your game needs, is a little turn on the right screws to make it more efficient and successful. The HEAD-MAN checks your current game and gives you the right tools and game-plan to win more matches: without having to invest a lot of money, time and… agony! Get the best out of your game: More wins, more fun, more tennis at any level of play!
