A stroke technique is a movement pattern used to solve a problem and therefore cannot be designed on a drawing board. At TennisGate we have made a commitment to observe these movement patterns and describe them. We go into great detail in our analysis and using our knowledge of biomechanics to draw conclusions that we can integrate into our on court practices.

We establish guidelines based on the common aspects of the swings of top players and use them to train our young players. We teach them fundamentals upon which they can develop their individual styles in the future. The conclusions and assertions of our TennisGate authors are always supported by their practical experience.
