Offerings at the National Campus

Private Lessons & Semi-Private Training

Bailey Tennis Footwork private training is all about Dave finding your strengths and developing your movement patterns to ultimately choreograph your unique "Way of Play". The program is very personalized, highly structured and incorporates continual assessment.

Players are introduced to the 5R’s of great tennis footwork and movement, and begin to learn and master the 6 athletic skills of tennis - Hopping, Pivoting, Shifting, Lunging, Transferring and Spinning the hips - combined with the relevant Hitting Stances, Out Steps, Recovery Steps and correct Swing Lines. 

Players initially learn the techniques using templates (eg: squares, arrows, discs, cones etc) - but not in a way that you might be used to or have ever seen before – this training is unlike any other! 

Once the moves are learned using the templates, players practice with Shadow Tennis and then progress to hitting tennis balls on court to various targets.

Every private training session includes: 

  • Outline of lesson objectives (agreed goals and focus for the lesson)
  • Baseline assessment (where are we starting from today?)
  • Personalized routine training (by end of lesson a complete drill that can be practiced at home)
  • Wrap Up

OPTIONAL ADD-ONS – Improve your live ball footwork
