The ATP and WTA have today announced a partnership with TopCourt, the first official tennis e-learning partner of the ATP Tour and WTA Tour.
I am personally a fan and a subscriber to TopCourt and offer readers of Tennisnerd a 14-day free trial if they click this link. Today they released a joint press release with the ATP and WTA announcing their official partnership with the WTA and ATP for e-learning.
What is TopCourt?
TopCourt offers tennis fans the educational tools for learning the game from the world’s best players of the past, present, and future, as well as the sport’s legendary coaches. Exclusive content includes tennis lessons, drills, strategy and training tactics, player interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage, offering fans unprecedented access to their favorite players.
Since launching less than a year ago, TopCourt has already gained the support of more than 50 star ambassadors and coaches, boasting an eclectic roster of current stars, Grand Slam champions, and legends of the sport, including Bianca Andreescu, Victoria Azarenka, Taylor Fritz, Sofia Kenin, Petra Kvitova, Nick Kyrgios, Denis Shapovalov, Frances Tiafoe, Venus Williams, Alexander Zverev, the Bryan Brothers, Lindsay Davenport and Chris Evert. TopCourt also features an incredible roster of the sport’s most legendary coaches such as Paul Annacone, Nick Bollettieri and Brad Gilbert.
Through the partnership, content from various TopCourt players will be featured on the ATP and WTA’s digital platforms, highlighting TopCourt ambassadors on the tours’ rankings pages. Designated via the signature gold court icon, fans will have access to new releases, exclusive trailers, and extended player profiles, linking them back to the TopCourt site.
