Master Your Footwork

Everything starts with your feet. Getting to the ball quickly and being in position is essential to success in today’s game.

As Seen In


“The best movers are the best players.” Roger Federer.

Footwork is the name of the game. It’s no use having great strokes if you are not in position to play them!

Are you quick and agile or sometimes just a little bit late to the ball?
Do your slow reactions cost you valuable opportunities? 

Ann totally understands the complexity of preparing tennis players and all that is needed to excel on and off the court. Tennis players today must be super quick to sprint a few metres to the ball and yet matches can take longer than a marathon to complete. They have to have the vision and reaction to consistently hit balls over 160km per hour as well as starting, stopping, changing direction, jumping and be balanced and flexible enough to hit wide balls on the run! Combine this with your own strengths and weaknesses, your past injury history, your training age, ability, style, development, and the surfaces you play on and you will understand the complexity.
