Tennis Europe has launched its latest educational video in the 'Junior School' series, featuring insights from ATP and WTA players about their relationships with coaches. In this video, Swiss WTA/ITF player Conny Perrin talks about the important topic of selecting the right coach and having a beneficial coach-player partnership.

This new addition joins a collection of videos designed for the Tennis Europe Junior School, made especially for junior players, coaches, and parents, and available free of charge. Notably, the School stands as the only player education program to be approved by the International Tennis Federation and the ATP and WTA professional tours.

Tennis Europe CEO Thomas Hammerl stated, “We are pleased to introduce another important topic for the School. Coaching plays a significant role in a tennis player’s life, and we want players to understand that they have to feel comfortable with their coaches from an early age.”

Mr. Hammerl will present the new topic at this weekend’s scheduled Junior School event in Stockholm, where Europe’s top 14 & Under players are gathered for the Kungens Kanna & Drottningens Pris Super Category tournament.

With overall responsibility for international tennis events for players aged 12, 14 and 16 & Under events in 48 countries, Tennis Europe has introduced a new safeguarding procedure for the Junior Tour, the Coaches Registration Scheme, from 2024. All coaches and other individuals accompanying players competing on the Junior Tour are required to register before attending tournaments.

Covering a diverse range of topics, the Tennis Europe Junior School serves as a valuable resource for young players preparing for their professional careers. Now in its fourth year, the School also has an onsite presence at various tournaments throughout the year. Here is the list of currently scheduled classes for 2024:
