Accelerate Tennis Philosophy
Learning Vs Teaching
Placing athletes in different on-court scenarios and to give them a chance to explore ways to successfully achieve the objective, is one of the cornerstones of our philosophies.
Processing the feedback i.e. post-match analysis which is given after each attempt and then strategizing another possible solution is extremely important. We focus on building a self problem-solving skill in our advanced-level tennis players.
The technical development & tactical understanding of the game, are important aspects for a player, and adequate time should be given to polish these skills. However, we believe that the player’s ability to adapt their technique in a given situation is paramount.
Fundamentally the game-based approach states that tactics will determine the technique. You will see your technique adapt to your shot intention (whether you hit it deep down the line or make a sharp angle cross-court).
Quality over Quantity
At Accelerate Tennis, many of our sessions are shorter in duration than many other academies. We train with purpose and intensity. All our tennis lessons are planned, and lesson outcomes are recorded and analysed through player performance reports, to ensure high productivity.
The number of matches & tournaments played in each event is essential for a player's overall development. However apart from actual tournament exposure, these matches expose the weak areas of the player that need attention and we help them develop certain characteristic traits that are needed for a better game play.
Playing an excessive number of tennis tournaments at a young age usually slows down the overall development of the player game. For planning a professional career, the player needs to be assessed and needs a properly planned tournament schedule, which enables a qualitative approach. We make sure the player is in proper shape to win.
Usually we follow a simple rule – the player's age / fitness / career goals will determine how many tournaments a player should play in a calendar year.
For example, if a child is 14 years old, he/she should play 14 tennis tournaments in a calendar year. Tournament level, the player's current playing level, player objectives are all considered. Ideally, the child should play 5 to 6 matches per tournament.
Without a doubt, parents play an integral role in developing a tennis player. We encourage frequent communication with our academy coaches and welcome parental feedback.
We conduct regular parent-coach counselling sessions to ensure that the career goals are met. And the approach towards the game are well aligned between the parents and the academy. We work together on the child's growth by understanding both our roles towards the athlete.
The athletic development of the child is paramount for their future success. We follow three key points when designing a fitness program for the players:
- Injury Prevention
Postural analysis, screening and specific prehab programs for each player, help to minimize athletic injuries and
This covers many factors like nutrition, hydration, active recovery, sleep, foam rolling etc. To ensure a structured recovery and athletic development program, we plan a high-level training for a sustained period.
