Our Dna Court Training

Recognition and Anticipation

We understand that modern tennis and tennis of the future is played first with the ‘eyes’, then with the ‘mind’, next with the ‘legs’ and finally with the ‘hands’. In the camps we will apply training systems geared in this direction to prepare you to anticipate and take the initiative of the game.

Patience and Endurance

Develop patience, endurance, and consistency from the baseline to outplay your opponents.

Effort and Power

Build a solid game style based on effort where any defensive situation can turn into an offensive opportunity by generating power in forced positions.

Risk Management and Tactical Knowledge

Defense and offense are always intertwined in tennis, and it’s the instantaneous conversion of a losing position into a winning position that makes the sport so thrilling. Learning how to differentiate both positions and making good decisions will take your game to the next level.
