Coaching Philosophy

G-tennis believe in the vast difference between TEACHING (often overlooked!), TRAINING & COACHING.

G-TEACHING - Getting fundamental technique right in the early stages of learning.
G-TRAINING - Consolidating techniques through repetition and tactically relevant drills.
G-COACHING - Developing tactical understanding through more match play and appreciating the psychological demands of the game.
