Kovacs Workshop

Dr. Mark Kovacs visited Tennis Addiction on Wednesday, November 30th for a one day workshop on Tennis Strength and Conditioning. Kovacs wrote the book on the subject for the USTA and remains the foremost presenter of the material. We are deeply indebted to him for squeezing us into his schedule and look forward to another visit. In the meantime he is helping us write individual workout plans for all of our students. This allows TA to put even more distance between them and other clubs when it comes to Junior Training Excellence!
