The world famous Van Der Meer TennisUniversity courses created by legendary coach Dennis Van der Meer are now combined and revamped to encompass time tested basics and current trends. Total TennisUniversity has been the launching pad for many of the world’s top teaching professionals. However this amazing course is open to parents and players who just want to get a better understanding of the basics and improve their own games in the process. Certification by either/both of the two major organizations is optional at the end only if you want to pursue testing.
Dennis Van der Meer’s philosophy is that everyone, regardless of circumstance, can enjoy tennis. Dennis always took a great interest in adapting tennis to suit any special needs his students may have. Being on court with Dennis was always fun for all. He adapted instruction for most temporary (as in stroke rehab,) or long term (as in intellectual disability) physically or mentally challenged populations. Part of every TennisUniversity course is devoted to information on adaptive tennis, and finding programming on the web.
