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.
