It's a Journey

We understand better than anyone the challenges of making progress in your game. It involves ups and downs, trial and error.

We noticed that there is a group of players and coaches who want to maximize their potential without necessarily aiming for the Grand Slams. However, there was no platform to bring these individuals together and provide them with the desired progress.

Hugo Straver, the founder of Tennis the World, drew inspiration from this challenge to come up with a solution.

Hugo needed tips for matches, mental and tactical tools, and ways to develop oneself in your own time, whether it was through casual play or improving physical fitness from the comfort of your home.

Ultimately, the PROgression-PROgram was born, a program designed for passionate players and dedicated coaches.


The Circle Of Progress

This is what we call our community: 'The Circle Of Progress.'

Inside our circle, there are individuals who are truly committed to tennis. Those who aspire to more than just hitting a ball once a week.

A significant part of your skill level is determined by your environment.

That's why we aim to bring people together in our circle.

We're all about achieving progress.
