Rowan Moss, LTA Level 5 Master Performance Coach, leads the programme at Down the Line Tennis Academy. Rowan has worked at all levels of the game but his background has always been performance tennis. Over the years he has travelled extensively with players on the ITF and ATP tours and has been to each of the 4 Grand Slams with players he has coached.
Now his focus is on developing players of the future and the culture that Rowan has created at Down the Line Tennis Academy is one of hard work, passion, being committed to marginal gains and developing discipline.
The performance programme is centred on developing great technique that will not break down under pressure along with developing great dynamic balance. Players need to understand what they are trying to do on a tennis court and this performance programme is like a tennis school where their tennis specific knowledge is challenged on a daily basis. Knowledge is power as they say and in order to correct something when it’s going wrong and there is nobody around to ask a player needs to have the tools to do so.
One thing that you can be sure of at Down the Line Tennis Academy is that the coaches have their finger on the pulse of competition. Our coaches go to Nationals, Grade 2’s & 3’s, travel overseas to Tennis Europe tournaments and have taken many tennis trips away - the most recent trip being to a Ten-Pro tournament at The Rafa Nadal Academy Majorca.
Strength & Conditioning is also a big focus for us and an area we are looking to develop more and more. We are lucky to be based at York St John University where we have a gym, an S&C suite and a sprint track all on site. We have close links to the University’s S&C tutors and have postgraduates working with us and the players we teach. As coaches we are constantly learning and improving the way we help develop the players for the increasing demands of the modern game.
