Dublin School's approach to tennis is based on a four-part strategy to maximize potential. The program is designed to ensure that student-athletes develop the following foundational skills which are essential to succeeding at all levels of tennis.
Technical - balance, posture and mechanical efficiency
Tactical - playing with a purpose using directionals, court position and spin
Physical - cross-training to develop a finely conditioned athlete
Emotional/Mental - working toward competitive maturity
While students come to Dublin School with varying experiences in tennis, those that play through our program often develop a deeper passion for this life-long sport and continue to play recreationally and at the college level.
