Tennis Training Center



TTC Training Program

At TTC we design the Training Programs to develop highly qualified instructors to realize our missions, to produce world-class players and to promote the growth of Tennis.

Sports Science Seminar

In order to produce world-class athletes, it is imperative to first develop high quality instructors. We believe that ideal instructor has both extended experience as well as knowledge of the Sports Science.
Under this belief, TTC ran Sports Science Seminars for the instructors throughout Japan since 1988, inviting many instructors and sports scientists from top tennis nations. The seminars proved a great success with the number of attendees surpassing 300 every year.
Below, the brief summary of the past Sports Science Seminars hosted by TTC.
