"As a player, the TennisGate Tennis and Ball School in Villingen was my home since I was a little boy until I left for college. There I developed the fundamentals that my college coach Marc Booras build upon to help me become the player I am today. I still use many of the videos on the site and even appear on some of the clips.

Edgar Giffenig, Jürgen Mueller and Oliver Heuft have developed many players in their long coaching careers. Among them Dominik Koepfer, who was the number 1 player in college tennis in 2016. Dominik trained at the TennisGate Academy from the age of 6 to 18 before joining Tulane. TennisGate observes and analyses top player and uses this information to design age-appropriate training systems for the next generation of players. Their vast on-court experience working at all levels of the game coupled with their long-time involvement in coaching education makes TennisGate the perfect partner for any coach."

In May 2016 I visited TennisGate Media in Germany – the technology center of the company. This studio is responsible for the development of the newest tennis media for coaching education as well as for the production of the coaching syllabi for different associations. I was very impressed by their modern equipment and their meticulous and innovative work. It is a technological center solely devoted to tennis and therefore very unique."

For many years I played ice hockey and tennis in my youth. Although I did not become a tennis professional in the end, the coaches in the TennisGate tennis school provided me with important basics that were valuable for my career as a professional athlete. "

Otto DresslerChairman of the Teaching Committee of the Baden Tennis Association
In my capacity as a National Coach and later the Davis Cup Captain, I was fortunate to work very closely with Edgar in his capacity as a USTA Coach from 1990 to 1995. Edgar has a great understanding of the game of tennis and was very good at communicating with the player’s. His high level of energy and enthusiasm that he brought to the teaching court everyday had a very positive effect on the player’s and his fellow coaches as well. Edgar also is a tremendous student of the game, and never stops learning interacting with his fellow coaches in his quest to become the best coach he can be."

Bob and I travelled the world with Edgar when we were juniors and he helped coach us to become the players we are today. The input and advice he gave us during these crucial years was invaluable. Edgar is not only a technical and strategic genius, but is incredibly hard working and dedicated to his profession. And most importantly, he is one hell of a guy and a great friend!"
