HDTA is very proud of our representative training squads which we have provided with subsidised fees for our junior club members for more than 20 years. We continue to strive to maintain HDTA as one of the premier tennis associations through our squads which help develop talent , foster teamwork and encourage players to reach their full potential .
Our squads are specifically designed for the committed junior tennis player who is participating in our weekly club competition and receiving regular coaching instruction. Our squads are instructed by our team of fully accredited and highly qualified club coaches.
These additional training sessions aim to incorporate practice drills and a better understanding of the tactical vs technical aspects of your game . We work with the players individual strengths and weaknesses with the focus more on strategy and building match toughness rather than on technical stroke production or correction . We also focus on fitness with every session providing dedicated time to increasing cardio levels through a series of workouts and footwork drills .
We currently manage 6 training squads which cater to players at all levels of play . From the advanced player in our higher division’s of junior competition to the new player who has entered competitions for the first time we offer the opportunity to train with others of similar standard while sharpening their game for match play .
