ABOUT SYSTEM-9

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

Our mission is to grow the game of tennis from the ground up by influencing clubs, coaches and federations with a simple methodology of teaching children’s tennis.

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

We can also teach you how to teach, however we know that there is more than one way to teach and every coach has their own way of understanding how their own students learn.
