Footwork, Balance and Movement.
Unlike nearly all other tennis training programs available today, players in the KBTS program learn and develop their footwork whilst hitting tennis balls on court. The KBTS places considerable focus on Footwork and Movement training believing that these skills are fundamental to on-court performance.
In addition to working on a player’s speed, agility and quickness on court, players ability to Get Ready, Read, React, Respond and Recovery on the court will be assessed and developed using the revolutionary system of footwork training known as the Bailey Method. Players learn the concept of the Contact Move and how to best to take time away from their opponents or hit out of their opponents strike zone resulting in far greater success in match play.
Developing mental skills and discipline to enable the players to reach their full competitive potential is a key component of the program. Players will work on these skills on and off the court on a daily basis.
Serve, Return and Groundstroke Development:
Utilising the ground-breaking Sharpshooter System, each player will be assessed on their serving ground stroke and return technique, and will use the system to develop far greater accuracy, balance and recovery skills.
Players are regularly filmed on court during their training sessions. Bobby and David use these videos to review performance and development with players.
