What is the GBA (Game Based Approach)?

Tired of taking the same old tennis lessons and hearing the same old tips with same the old frustrating results?

THE GBA IS A MORE INTUITIVE WAY TO LEARN TENNIS. Think of The Game Based Approach more like The Performance Based Approach. Instead of focusing on technique or "the strokes" first and hope you figure out how to use them in a game later, the GBA is the complete opposite. It focuses on getting you to understand how to play the game first and then uses technique as a tool to get you to perform better.

The GBA does not just get people to play "games" and ignore technique. It uses a systematic way of integrating the tactical, physical, mental & technical together. The way tennis is being taught is shifting away from traditional "model" based coaching.

If you're only hearing your coach tell you you're getting better but you're not really sure, get measurable results...find out what the ITF and players around the world already know.. The GBA is the best way to learn tennis.

Marcos Baghdatis in Vancouver

Marcos Baghdatis just won the Vancouver Open a couple of weeks ago. The biggest difference between Baghdatis and most of the players in the draw was his ability to stay calm under pressure. Not only mentally but physically. There were many times during his matches that he was in trouble and he just looked like you knew he would find a way. When he needed a big passing shot on a pressure point he was relaxed during the shot and came up with goods when he needed it most. When coaching high performance players, make sure the player "performs" when they need it most. Look at their muscle tension during their shots, not just the stroke pattern.
