The USPTA Player Development Program is designed to serve as an educational resource for the ever-evolving game and help all tennis teachers introduce new techniques to their players. It has the potential to change the way people teach and learn tennis, and its direct results will be better teachers, more educational resources, and an increased interest in and enthusiasm for the sport among all players - from beginners to touring pros.
USPTA introduces and explains the numerous components of its Player Development Program in a series of special chapters that appear in ADDvantage magazine. A sample of the chapters are available through the links below. The full chapters are available to USPTA members only.
