Smartphones have infiltrated into every aspect of our lives and we are always on the lookout for new applications to enhance our work and leisure activities, including the time we spend playing tennis. Women’s Tennis Blog’s new partner Tennis Central, company founded by internationally decorated tennis expert/coach and online tennis instructor Yann Auzoux, created a phone/tablet application, which provides adult players with an all-encompassing tool to learn from the world’s best coaches and experts and to be exposed to the largest variety of tennis players and styles available.
The Tennis Central app, available for Android and Apple devices, features over 250 lessons and courses on all aspects of player development: technique, strategy and tactics, tennis-specific fitness and conditioning, injury prevention, nutrition and the mental game. Each Tennis Central member gets a fully customized experience designed to maximize improvement and promote personal and professional growth, whether players are new to the sport, intermediate-level, or seasoned high-performance competitors.
Here’s a word from the company founder on why he was motivated to make the app:
Tennis can be tedious to schedule, partners are hard to find when you first start, and the game can be costly and take a long time to learn. These factors have kept players who love the sport away from the game for too long and Tennis Central provides the solution to their challenges. Our mission is to continue to empower more adults to experience the kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge services previously reserved for elite athletes and professionals, in order to fast-track their progress and fulfill their full potential.
The Tennis Central web/mobile platform boasts multi-dimensional services ranging from player pairing based on multi-faceted options, improvement planning designed to fast track players’ developments, customized video instruction delivered to support the acute learning curve with an iTunes style delivery process and price point and a state-of-the-art communication process that makes instant communication standard for all members.
Coaches with expertise in everything from stroke mechanics to strategy, and sports psychology to nutrition use video, whiteboards, movement drills, fitness equipment, and other modern tools and techniques to create an unprecedented learning opportunity for players. Because the platform is opened, coaches are encouraged to submit more content regularly for members to keep learning from multiple sources.
