F.A.Q

Does it work with players of different tennis level?


No matter the level of tennis you have, we'll help you to improve it. Following our indications, you will develop your game.




What are the differences with other tennis programs?


We have developed our own training method which we call Neurotraining. This method consists of mixing the knowledge of neuroscience with tennis training. The use of these innovative exercises on court allow the players to train their technical aspects and their mind at the same time. Through which we get very good and much faster results.

You can see improvements from the first week of training, but then you need time to consolidate the changes obtained.
