It takes about 10 years (average) of training for most tennis players to achieve elite levels. With that in mind, we at MPTA approach training with long-term goals in mind for the majority of our students. At MPTA we know that a long time commitment to training and development is essential to produce high-level tennis players.
A specific well-planned training regime will ensure optimum development throughout a tennis player's career and control the stress levels on player's body and mind as well. A lack of planning can lead to over-training, injuries and burnout. There is no way around athletic preparation if you want to succeed. Athletes should follow specific steps throughout their development. Rushing through those steps will most likely result in shortcomings in physical, technical, tactical and most of all psychological abilities.
