We are passionate about building tennis for the future.

We have a tried and tested methodology which coaches can follow and clubs
can implement in order to grow their programme and also retain their young players.

SYSTEM-9 teaches you what to teach and when to teach.



We run certification courses for individual coaches, clubs and for federations.   More details coming soon!


We run a number of different courses around the UK and Europe educating coaches on how to be the very best mini tennis coach.


Andy Dowsett can use his expertise to advise you on your coaching program.     Contact us for more details.
