Competitive players are those who actively compete in National Tournaments, have a 90% attendance record on all organized trainings, train on their own , play on weekend match days and follow the work out plans.
Elite Players are those who live and dedicate their lifes to the sport with at least 2 trainings per day.
As a competitive player you will receive as much support, time and resources from the ATA as the amount of hard work and commitment you invest in your development. The ATA resources are distributed unevenly among all players based on their individual goals and the amount of work dedicated towards achieving them. While quality is important for success, quantity - the amount of hours on court is also a determinant factor.
The Swedish Tennis Federation has reserached and published the amount of training required for a player that is interested in becoming an elite player. Read the UTVEKLINGSTRAPPAN here.
