Justin Clark & the Tahoe Tennis Academy Philosophy
Throughout my years as a competitive junior, collegiate and satellite tournament player, professional coach and director of tennis activities I have always strived to achieve a level of professionalism while growing the great game of tennis. The Tahoe Tennis Academy program promotes tennis as a lifetime sport through high level and specific tennis training. Our players will develop their on and off court sportsmanship and teamwork, through positive attitudes and hard work. They will develop racquet skills, footwork, and balanced movement to progress onto the singles and doubles strategies. The programs we offer focus on attacking and defending hitting positions, tennis match play strategies preparing young players for competitive tennis on high school teams or junior tennis tournaments.
