Register nowHigh Performance Elite Training (Ranked Players Only)

For the serious tournament level player, Gotham Tennis Academy offers our High Performance Elite Training Program. This program is fully customized around the needs of the tournament level player.

The idea behind Gotham's High Performance Elite Program is to provide the most individualized tennis training program for ranked tournament players, allowing players to reach their full potential. Players in the program will have a private coach that will work closely with the player to map out a detailed Developmental Plan addressing strengths and weaknesses in the tactical, technical, mental and physical areas. This plan will also set goals and a roadmap to achieve them, including a detailed tournament schedule. In this program you will train just like the pros, with access to Dartfish video analysis to get instant feedback. Gotham's High Performance Elite Program is by invitation only, to maximize the attention and court time players desire. In this program, we believe that the level of private coaching is unmatched and provides an essential ingredient in maximizing player development.

In addition to providing elite-level conditioning and training programs, one of our elite level personal coaches will also be assigned to accompany the player to tournaments and to prepare for and analyze matches. Since many of our elite-level coaches and training staff have competed at the college level – some making their way all the way through to the pro tour -- we know what it takes to develop the full potential of an elite player. Gotham Tennis Academy accelerates development and on-going learning to position the elite player to realize his/her full potential as a junior tournament player, a college player and beyond.

* By Invitation Only.
Please ask about special Elite training discounts and scholarships!
