MBTA COMPETITION TEAM = THE WINNING TEAM
Program for highly motivated and goal oriented tournament tennis players of all ages - We motivate players of all ages and abilities towards competitive play and practicing the way the best players in the world do. Besides individual developmental trainings, big part of practices are sessions with two players on the court, playing/practicing match-like situations under competitive conditions. We are mixing genders and different age groups, the only criteria is the compatibility in the performance outcome. MBTA-Team members are receiving special conditions and support from the MBTA and from our long-time partner HEAD Rackets Sports!
