COURSES AT GPTCA

 

The GPTCA offers educational opportunities all over the world to enhance the knowledge of tennis coaches. All the courses offered by the GPTCA are certified by the ATP World Tour.

 

There are three levels of coaching proficiency – A-level, B-level and C-level. Note that the level A is attained solely on the basis of achievements. Levels B and C certification is usually gained through successful completion of our courses. In some cases, however, they can also be granted on the basis of a proven track in developing tennis players.
