What Can Brain Game Tennis Strategies Do For You?

Whether you’re a player or coach, there’s never been a clear path to actually improving at tennis.

  • Should we practice more forehands, backhands, serves or returns?
  • How important is consistency for winning matches?
  • How much time should you spend working on technique over strategy?
  • Where should you serve in singles? What about doubles?

Historically in tennis, the answers to all these questions were based on theories NOT backed by data.

Now, we have millions of data points on thousands of matches per year. After analyzing this data, you’ll be surprised what you find.

For example, practicing extended rallies is mostly wasted time if you want to win more matches.

It’s time to completely change the way we play & coach tennis.

Craig O’Shannessy has finally taken all this data and created tactics & strategies for some of the top juniors & ATP pros in the world.

The results have been amazing!

Bran Game Tennis courses are the only tennis strategies out there that use data to back up the lessons. There are simply no other courses available to the public like this.

You’ll finally know exactly what to focus on to take your game to the next level. Whether you’re a singles or doubles player, a college tennis athlete or 4.0 league player, a coach for juniors or pros, these courses will transform the way you think, teach, and play tennis.
