Our Elite Coaches

 

Our ETC team consists of around fifteen tennis coaches and fitness trainers.

All of them were selected for their experience on the circuit as a coach and player, as well as for their passion and investment in the job. One of the main strengths of the ETC team is to know how to use the profile and identity of each coach in complementarity for the benefit of the players.

The body of a tennis player is in great demand during his career, which is why ETC has a complete professional medical team (doctor, physiotherapist, osteopath, nutritionist), available on request.
In order to make the most of your potential, we support you in mental preparation throughout your project, also on request
