CourtSense has developed a highly unique, technically and scientifically sound approach to teaching the game of tennis while nurturing the spirit of each individual player.”– Dr. James Loehr, Ed.D., world-renowned sports psychologist, bestselling author and Chairman/CEO of Human Performance Systems.


PHILOSOPHY  

We care about our students being the best they can be - physically, emotionally and intellectually.

                  • It is key that they become “students of the game.”
                  • It is important that the CourtSense Team tap into the spirit of each player.
                  • It is vital that our students become complete athletes.
                  • We work diligently with our students, helping them develop a deeper commitment to patience, discipline, fitness and focus.
                  • We feel it is essential that our students learn life lessons in the process of learning tennis.
                  • We feel it is important that players find the fun in it all!

METHODOLOGY

CourtSense believes that the most important part of the game of tennis is first played with the 
MIND, second with the FEET, and third with the SWING. CourtSense’s methodology is to teach 
these concepts in the opposite direction. We start by first making sure that all the aspects of the 
SWING are in order; the player has the proper grips, the proper set up and is able to make the right 
transfer of energy from the beginning to the end of each stroke. Once the swing is in order, the next 
step is to make sure that the player can use their FEET in the most efficient way to get into a position to 
execute the swing. The final and third element that we teach is how to play the game using the MIND 
by teaching patterns of play, variations, breathing techniques, rituals, visualization and more. As our 
students progress, we coach them on how to use the tools they were taught while exposing them to all 
aspects of the game. 

TECHNOLOGY

To maximize the impact of our training methodology, CourtSense has some of the most 
technologically-advanced equipment available in sports today.

Dear Players,

Whether you’re on a recreational path or committed to becoming a high performance player, CourtSense treats each one of our players with the same professionalism, attention to detail  and respect.  One of the challenges of becoming a competent and successful tennis player is learning all the different skills our game requires. Different grips, swing paths, surfaces, indoors/outdoors, footwork, types of shots (i.e. volleys, ground-strokes, serves, overheads, etc.) make our game quite challenging to learn properly. We encourage our players to play with proper technique and structure, especially when learning tennis.  We feel it’s also important for our players to explore and at times play with less structure. Knowing these facts inspired us to develop the CourtSense progression of teaching.

The more time you spend on court, the quicker you’ll get through our progressions of teaching. The following video of Mr. Miyagi teaching Daniel in the “Karate Kid” gives you a glimpse of what we are attempting to do with every player in our program. We provide a bit more “fun factor” in our teaching then what Daniel experienced, however we must remember that there is a portion of learning that requires repetition and discipline which can be challenging at times.
