It's a Tuesday at 4pm.
You're on court with your talented group of 12 year olds from the local neighborhood. This is the third week you've worked on backhands this term, yet the activities you're doing with them don't seem to be making an impact. You understand development is not a short term game, and every drill you try encourages involvement and makes them work hard. Then you realise...
- You're not sure why you're doing that specific drill.
- You don't have any idea if this is appropriate for your player's ability level.
- Your players are only working on court, there's no long term development plan.
- This is the third week in a row you've done this drill, and are running out of ideas to keep your lessons fresh and exciting.
And then you stumble on The Tennis Menu and coaching begins to take on a different perspective for you...
I'm Marc Sophoulis, the Head Coach and co-founder of The Tennis Menu. I'm a multi sport high performance coach with over 20 years experience and proven results.
The Tennis Menu is so much more than just a collection of 800+ drills. It incorporates on and off court teachings with short and easy to implement real solutions to common problems you've faced before. The emphasis is on you becoming a better coach or player, not just giving you a bunch of drills.
Let's share this journey together and become the best players and coaches we can be.

We get straight to the point and don't mess around. Search by drill type, and watch a 1 minute video that shows you the drill without fluff. You should focus on teaching, not watching videos.

HERE'S WHAT TO DO NEXT
YouTube is great. It's a great resource for improving as a coach, plus it's free.
This issue is also it's strength - There's so many coaches telling you what to do and giving you the latest and greatest new drill. It can be pretty overwhelming though to work out who knows what they're talking about, and locating videos that don't require you to sit there for an eternity to get some useful information. Finding good, concise content is next to impossible.
At the Tennis Menu, we believe you should have a clear understanding of which drill to use with your players, why you should use it, and when the best time is. We help take the guesswork out of developing your players.
All of our videos guide you along this development path, with clear explanations and take away points, allowing you to focus on creating future champions.
With us, you don't just get a new drill. You get:
The reason behind the drill.
The understanding to implement it when most appropriate with your player.
A breakdown of how it should be used in conjunction with other drills within a lesson.
A list of the equipment we recommend, and why we recommend it for that drill.
The meaning behind any terminology used to teach the drill, to help you best communicate knowledgeably to your students.
An online community of like minded coaches from around the world that want to become better.
And a ton of new content produced daily just for you, because we believe coaching isn't a job, it's a lifestyle.
