What we believe
The foundations of our philosophy are built on our fundamental belief that a player’s performance should not be seen as end in and of itself. To us, the journey is just as important as the destination. With that in mind, our coaches epitomise the idea that any success in life comes about as a result of a positive and calm state of mind. We believe that to truly get the best out of yourself – whether you’re playing tennis, doing a speech, or anything else – you must put your heart and soul into every activity you do and fully engage with what you can control. As you learn to hone in on and control your game, you will start to understand how the process of your journey leads to your ultimate success. Don’t be surprised to find that, when you adopt this philosophy, similar successes will very soon start making their way into the rest of your life.
All of our programmes have been carefully designed to help you build strong foundations in tennis, as well as reach your individual goals. Tennis is not just a game to us; it’s a passion that’s also a means to personal development. As the UAE’s most innovative, professional and knowledgeable coaching facility, we want to inspire, guide and – most importantly – ensure our coaching techniques are of the highest quality.
We have found that our professional and hands-on approach leaves our players feeling satisfied and accomplished, and encourages them to want to live healthy and active lives on and off the court.
Our team believes in:
- Loving what you do and giving it all you’ve got
- Cultivating a positive mindset
- Continuing to learn and grow
- Continuing to strive for greatness no matter what obstacles lie ahead
- Understanding the importance of doing the right thing
- Being respectful and ethical
- Celebrating every improvement, no matter how small
