The Great Base
Eastern Hills Indoor is proud to be adopting THE GREAT BASE system established by Steve Smith. Steve designed and developed the very first accredited comprehensive degree program for tennis teachers and continues to train tennis pros and players around the world.
THE GREAT BASE is principled from Vic Braden’s research and has influences from other leading tennis educators such as Dennis Van Der Meer, Don Leary, Welby VanHorn, Jim Verdieck and Dr. Jim Loehr to name a few.
The system emphasizes technical, efficient ball striking skills as a way to minimize injury and promote stroke reliability. This system utilizes video analysis to assess and document progress. It is a goal oriented program which teaches students how to manage the game through their experiences with match charting, statistical analysis and mental checkpoints.
