USPTA Partners with RacquetFit
LAKE NONA, Fla. –
The United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) has partnered with RacquetFit to introduce a new certification for tennis-teaching professionals, fitness coaches and medical providers. RacquetFit, an educational organization dedicated to the study of how the human body functions in relation to tennis, will be offering seminars throughout the United States for these providers who wish to earn the RacquetFit Certification.
“What RacquetFit has developed is game changing for the tennis industry,” said John Embree, USPTA CEO. “RacquetFit was developed by an Advisory Board of tennis-industry leading experts and led by the founder of TPI (Titleist Performance Institute), Dr. Greg Rose. With TPI’s cutting edge research and development and over 21,000 professionals certified through their network, we wanted to partner with RacquetFit to produce the same cutting-edge education for the tennis industry.”
Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from leading experts in the tennis, fitness, and medical profession from instructors such as Dr. Sean Drake, Dr. Mark Kovacs, Dr. Greg Rose and Jeff Salzenstein. Upon completion of the certification, professionals will have the tools to screen the physical limitations of a player along with the knowledge of how to get them back to performing at a high level.
“By being able to assess a player’s physical abilities, and then understanding how those attributes relate to their tennis-specific skills, is what separates an average coach from a great coach,” said Dr. Sean Drake, Vice President of RacquetFit. “Up until today, tennis specific fitness and medical professionals could not obtain recognition from the global leader in tennis-teacher certification, the USPTA. Now, fitness and medical providers can proudly display and announce to the world, that they are educated and recognized as a tennis-specific expert through the RacquetFit Certification and the USPTA.”
