The National Training Squad (NTS) operates as part of the newly established National Training Centre (NTC). The NTS is a training programme for talented players, aged 18 and under, who demonstrate the potential to represent Hong Kong in junior events in the future. The NTC caters for adult players who are pursuing a professional tennis career, as well as junior players who have access to flexible schooling. The NTS follows a coaching philosophy and training structure that is conducive to a player’s overall growth, and combines intensive training, competition, and specialist sessions. Our goal is to produce players who are “Best in Asia!” Players can expect mentoring support from the coaches, to assist in their tennis development through the player’s long-term development plan (LTDP). Players will learn how to build a training and competition schedule, set performance and outcome goals, experience mental training, strength and conditioning, and nutrition and diet education.
