PASSION and PROFESSIONALISM

BATD takes also in charge professional tennis players management (through a dedicated structure called IATD). Kristof Vliegen, Olivier and Christophe Rochus, Yanina Wickmayer, Kirsten Flipkens are among the recent players who beneficiated from IATD support.

Tennis at all levels
The BATD Tennis Programm promotes teaching methods adapted to each age. Mini-Tennis starts as early as 3 years old with baby tennis. 12m Mini-Tennis and 18m Mini-Tennis are the two next steps.

12m Mini-Tennis
The children discover different physical aspects of themselves - dexterity, coordination, speed, relaxation, endurance, rythm. The goal is to use a complete approach to racket sports and to master particular skills, such as balance, trajectories and the playing space. 

18m Mini-Tennis
The children play proper rallies with an intermediate ball where he or she practices, compares him/herself to others, copies and increasingly understands different aspects of the game. The goal is to focus on the outcome of their game and make that more of a priority; 18m Mini-Tennis is the last stage before passing on to a normal-sized 24m court. The evolution takes place naturally as the racket, the ball and the court have all grown progressively during the child's apprenticeship.

Events
BATD is a leading tennis event organizer in Belgium. In 2009, we organized the 5 top ranked tennis tournaments (Codic Open, Open de la Ville de Charleroi, Aquarius Open, Belisol Open, Mosa Open), one ETA Tournament (Primerose), etc. In the past years, BATD organized 5 Davis Cup ties in the Primerose, numerous Satellite and Challenger tournaments and corporate events.
