Our Ladies League Training programmes are in place to create a positive and healthy competitive training environment for Hong Kong Island ladies wishing to bring their own games as well as their League Team to the next level.
We don’t underestimate the value of team work when it comes to league teams and the game of doubles. We get to know the players, their team values, their strengths and weaknesses before creating structured training plans for all ladies at any level. From division 4 up to division 1 and Premier level. In our Ladies League Training programmes we offer Team training, group training, semi-private and private lessons.
The HKLTL is a non-proﬁt organization comprised of women tennis players from private clubs and independent tennis team throughout Hong Kong. The league oﬀers competitive doubles play in weekly matches during one full season in the year broken into two parts, fall running from September to December and spring running from January to April. There are ﬁve (5) divisions of play ranging from entry level competitive play in Division 4 to Premier.

Why chose Morlotti Academy to coach your team?
We understand the pressure of competitive tennis as our coaches have ﬁrst hand playing experience. Drawing upon this experience our coaches will relate and try to understand every team. Individualisation in a collective (team) environment for us is the way forward. By understanding speciﬁc set backs of each of our team players we can then address a way forward for that season, working to speciﬁcally enhance those errors. Every team is different and needs to be assessed differently.
Can Morlotti Academy’s High-Performance philosophy and mindset be transferred to our team?
By clearly communicating with our coaches on what aspects you think fall apart during your matches or work greatly under pressure you are then able to work systematically throughout the season and have goals you can attain during trainings.
AREA'S OF WORK THAT NEED IMPROVEMENT

Does Morlotti Academy coach all levels from Premier to Division 5?
Yes, we do not only focus on the top Divisions. We are available to coach all Divisions and will suggest speciﬁc coaches for speciﬁc levels of teams requesting for trainings.
Do we have to change our technique?
This is a speciﬁc question we have received over the years. The short answer is we want to primarily encourage what is natural to our ladies players already! Meaning no changing of grips or stroke take backs and styles on ﬁrst lessons and seasons with us. We stand by the philosophy that if a player is ready for change and needs change and the entire team is in agreement and will understand that there may be a set back or two in short term success due to these changes then we encourage that player to make whatever technical change they require. In general however most of our league trainings are Doubles speciﬁc and very tactically orientated.
