The training is spread across five one hour session & staggered across a six month period allowing the player to practice prior to attending subsequent sessions.

Advanced Tennis Footwork

ATC is licensed to teach 'The Bailey Method', a revolutionary Tennis footwork method founded by Mr David Bailey (world's leading footwork coach Orlando, FL at USTA National Campus).

Due to the swinging of the racket, tennis is often thought of as an upper-body sport, but your leg muscles, including your glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings and calves, are doing most of the work out on the court. 

Who is Mr David Bailey?

Mr David Bailey has been the footwork and movement trainer to over 21 professional Grand slam players including: 

Monica Seles, Jelena Dokic, Bethanie Mattek-Sands, Johanna Konta, Shaui Zhang, Vince Spadea, Jarmila Wolfe, Misaki Doi, Catalina Castano, Anne Keothavong and Andrew Ilie

Training location

The training sessions are conducted in Amaroo District playing fields (Tennis Courts) in the ACT.  If adverse weather is encountered, training will be conducted in a sheltered location as a part of wet-weather planning or re-scheduled to a later date.

Training approach

Both Technique and Tactics are required to develop players. ATC has adopted a combination of static instruction based coaching and live ball drills to make learning process fun and interesting.

A Technique Centered Approach 

The goal for the player is to imitate the coach-demonstrated activities as accurately as possible.  The drills during the session include specific activities that are focused on Technical proficiency that cover a wide range of tennis movements including Ground strokes, Net play & Transitions, Serve and others. An established lesson plan includes warm-up activities followed by a series of drills that practice the technique and the implementation of the technique in a game.

A Game Centered Approach

In the GCA format, the player participates in a game situation where tactics, decision making, problem solving and skills are developed concurrently. Isolated skill development is required only if the coach recognises the need for it.

An established lesson plan will include live ball drills as led by the coach. If more than one player is involved in the session , the coach would step out to the sidelines and instruct the players with the rules of the game so the participants could play the point-out.
