The ATC is an international competitive training center. As such, any players nominated to come to the Center should be participating, and achieving good results, in national and/or international tournaments on a regular basis. The schedule is demanding and players should be sufficiently advanced in competitive tennis to be able to complete the workload, and, therefore, derive benefit from the ATC experience. Players under 13 years of age would require special permission to attend the ATC. Player attitudes and effort are the cornerstones of success. Lack of effort or inappropriate behavior will result in suspension from the program.
