The Concept: 

You practice hard.  
You try hard.
You want to win.

BUT you still lose matches you shouldn't.

Do you ever wonder why you are unable to play in matches like you play in practice?   

The answer: There is too much of a gap between going to private lessons and drop-in clinics and then playing a competitive match.

​In what many of you experience during a normal skills practice, your coach will have you work on general things that will train you, but not necessarily as an individual or as a team player, to become a winner in competition match settings. This is mainly because things occur differently during competition and you may even play differently in a competitive match. 

More often than not, weaknesses show up in competition that are like tics that you don't notice, feel, or know how to overcome. All because there is a stress factor in matches, the stakes are higher, and in the heat of competition remembering how exactly your body or racquet was positioned for a point or loss is nearly impossible with relative accuracy. In competition, many coping points, or habits show up that we might have thought we conquered because, after all, we do great in practice.

Traditionally, in competition, coaches watch 4 courts at the same time and on top of that, the coach is not allowed to coach you until the match is over. After the match he or she points out what you should have done, but it is too late. Even worse, you lost, went home, feeling bad and you might have wished you had the coach's advice and observations during the entire match and not afterwards.

I played 15 years on the tour and believe me, I know that feeling of going home with my tail between my legs. Been there, done that. I know I can help you have fewer days like that.  Who needs those days? 

That's why F-ACE TENNIS EVENTS has created this “F-ACE Doubles Tournament with On-Court Coaching” to fill this void. Our coaching sessions which you will experience during tournament play will help you overcome and improve those bad habits, weaknesses, and things that occur only in competition. 

During my “F-ACE Doubles Tournament with On-Court Coaching”, your coaches will be with you on the court to coach and to gather valuable information about your tennis game. This will help them in working out a better way for you to train the next time you are on the practice court. Your tennis lessons and clinics will now become more focused on the important stuff and the time spent on the practice court will be of greater value. 

Join me and win more matches.

Wasting valuable time on the tennis court, is for your opponents.
