OUR PROGRAMMES

FOUNDATION

Our FOUNDATION programme aspires to develop new talent from the ground up. This programme is for anyone at any age who is looking to learn the fundamentals of tennis. In this programme we focus heavily on footwork, balance, racquet arm spacing to contact point, preparation and all the fundamental stroke progressions. Our FOUNDATION players will follow the ITF regulated pathway with different coloured balls (of different pressures) and different court sizes in order to develop technique as quickly and as safely as possible without hindering kids’ movement.

We offer Red Ball, Orange Ball and Green Ball lessons.

Red Ball = 3 - 4 Years old
Orange Ball = 5 - 7 Years old
Green Ball = 8 - 9 Years old
Yellow Ball = For any beginner who we believe is too powerful / advanced for the above pressurised balls

 
 

DEVELOPMENT

Our DEVELOPMENT programme is in place to develop players who play a minimum of two times a week. This programme is for anyone at any age who is looking to develop their tennis further and is willing to compete in Discovery Bay and Hong Kong National tournaments.

In this programme we work on fitness, tactics, technique and mental aspects of the game. Our development players will also follow the ITF regulated pathway with different coloured balls (of different pressures) and different court sizes in order to develop technique as quickly and as safely as possible without hindering kids’ movement. We offer Orange Ball and Green Ball lessons.

A DEVELOPMENT player should have at least 2-4 years foundation. By this we expect our players to be able to hit forehands, backhands, backhand slice, volleys, over heads, first serve and second serve. These players should also have some experience in match play. The DEVELOPMENT programme is for players who have the foundations, but are willing to train hard and develop into competitive national level junior players. We will assist in their development and teach how to attack, defend, neutralise and, most importantly, compete.

Orange Ball = 5 - 7 Years old
Green Ball = 8 - 9 Years old
Yellow Ball = 9 + Years old

 

ELITE

Our ELITE programme is for players with a Hong Kong ranking, aspiring to place in the top 10 of their age group in Hong Kong. With future goals of playing ATF Tournaments, ITF Tournaments, as well as either getting a US Scholarship or playing full time on the ITF Pro Circuit. These players should be training at the Academy 3-5 days a week.

 

In this programme we work on fitness, tactics, technique and mental aspects of the game. If a player is considered ELITE he/she will have a very good foundation and would have developed a personal game style by now. At the ELITE stage we develop juniors into winners by enhancing their strengths and solidifying their weaknesses. By encouraging a growth mindset and using implicit coaching rather than explicit coaching, our ELITE juniors will be able to compete and win at a high National Level.

Yellow ball = 10 + Years old

 

FULL-TIME & PRO

Our FULL-TIME & PRO programmes are for players who train full time at the Academy, training 6 days a week. These players have made the decision to pursue tennis full-time either before or after college. Our Academy welcomes both full-time juniors and 18+ pro players trying to cement themselves on the ITF Futures circuit with aspirations of breaking into the ATP Challenger Circuit before pushing for ATP World Tour Level for men, and higher level ITF events for women before breaking into the WTA circuit.

Our Academy will also act as an ideal training base for off-season training as well as for the Asian swing on the following events: ITF juniors, ITF Pro Circuit Men and Women, ATP Challenger and ATP World Tour.

 

Vision is paramount. We welcome players with a vision, and help guide them to reach their goals, through hard work, persistence, sacrifice and most importantly PASSION.

 

LADIES LEAGUE TRAINING

Our LADIES LEAGUE TRAINING programmes are in place to create a positive and healthy competitive training environment for Discovery Bay and Hong Kong Island ladies wishing to bring their own games as well as their League Team to the next level.
