About GlamSlam Tennis
GlamSlam Tennis provides world-class coaching for competitive women league players looking to get more out of their tennis game. While there are many online sites and coaches dedicated to both men and women (read: men), there are none that focus solely on female tennis athletes and their unique needs and interests. We celebrate those differences at GlamSlam Tennis!
We specialize in winning tennis strategies for doubles and singles players by looking at the whole athlete: peak performance through a strong mental game, tennis technique, team success, and age-appropriate fitness. Join us in an array of offerings, from live, on-court clinics in Northern and Southern California, an annual Tennis Academy, and interactive off-court training through our All Access Team on the free app called Edufii (it’s like having a coach in your pocket!).
Because tennis is 90% mental (according to Jimmy Connors), GlamSlam Tennis utilizes the genius of Kathy Toon’s GameFace System, a 4-step process for athletes before, during and after competition. As for technique and tactics, GlamSlam Tennis also incorporates Mary Pat Faley’s Force of Three, a set of challenging tennis drills for groups of 4-10 players on the tennis court.
