    I know somebody linked this site before, but I think this site deserves another mention. I think that this man honestly offers some of the greatest videos of tennis on the internet and believe he should be frequently consulted for instruction. Note: I am not connected to this site at all, just wanted to help him out because his vids have helped me.


    http://www.top-tennis-training.org/

    If you dont want to sign up, he also has youtube vids.

    +1 OP. It's a shame he doesn't have more followers on Youtube. He has a former ATP ranked pro helping him out in his new content now which will hopefully help the channel grow more rapidly.

    When the first page you see on opening the site is "the secrets to every stroke revealed" you know you are not getting "top-tennis-training"

    He does look pretty skilled. I have no idea who Ash has coached though.

    Interestingly that practice against the wall was filmed where I work.

    Bit of research and turns out I know of the guy behind the site, I'm sure he's a decent coach, I just don't like that way of marketing.

    Ok, the marketing on the first page is a bit cheesy, but his instructional videos are among the best I've ever seen, and I've seen quite a few. Wow. Thanks for the link!

    Isnt ash a disability coach based at Roehampton? Like performance disability stuff. I could be totally wrong.

    Out of interest, has the whole scrapping of the NTCs high performance set up affected the high performance disability tennis there?

    On the website. Interesting as I am currently setting up my own website but this isnt really what I'm going for at all

    Because it was a shambolic **** up a few years ago from what I heard and there have been next to no results.

    why does it ask for the email if it won't spam you? emails are worth about $13 bucks to other tennis internet coaches like fuzzy yellow tennis balls.

    Generally when a site asks for your email they're saying they will email you, but not give your email out to spammers (i.e. you will get THEIR promotional stuff, but they won't sell your address to third parties).

    So when you sign up for essential tennis or FYB or whatever, you are definitely going to get their emails.

    Thanks for pointing out this program. I watched all the videos on the youtube channel. One surprising thing he said was to pull the left arm back to start the FH (like pulling in the tossing arm on a serve) I had no idea pros/people where doing that.
