Tennis for today — "Feel the difference"

At Wicks Tennis Academy we strive to be informed of what is successful in today’s tennis environment. We have designed our program to achieve high sucess rates with juniors and adult players. We consistently study the biomechanics and technical advances that are taking place in the game today, including the physical aspects (plyometrics and core training), the nutritional aspects (Zone foods), and the mental game (Yoga, motivational techniques, and goal setting).

By focusing on all of the above, we have developed the content and structure of our programs for all ages and different skill levels. We have beginning, intermediate, and star programs.

Currently we are based out of Silver Lakes Tennis Club in Helendale, California — 20 minutes from the city of Victorville.

The international players we are training include:

  • Emmanual Mensah, Ghana. Davis Cup team and #1 Junior College player in Southern California
  • Gabor Toth, Hungary. #10-ranked player from Hungary
  • Amal Ben El Hadj, Tunisia. Fed Cup team member 2009
