Our team consists of coaches who have achieved real results and successes with their players. They were working with the players who were or are the best in the junior category or among the world's top professionals. These experiences come from the ITF, WTA or ATP level. Our tennis and fitness coaches were cooperating with such players as Daniela Hantuchova, Dominika Cibulkova, Nadia Petrova, Yanina Wickmayer, Henrieta Nagyova, Ksenia Pervak or Filip Horansky.

We don't think in small terms but in long-term goals. We want to be the best and we are striving for it right now, in the early days. Our ambition is not only to be the best in Slovakia or Central Europe. The truht is that our ambitions extend to the entire old continent and possibly beyond. We would like to convince the potential tennis clients about the quality of the preparation, sparrings, training sessions and let them spread the good name of the new EMPIRE Tennis Academy.

Our project is a long term commitment. We have no interest in short-term successes, we want to work conceptually with young tennis players who have the potential to succeed in the world of international tennis competition and win in the junior category and in the future, they might eventually grab the Grand Slam trophy and succeed at the ATP and WTA level. The starting point for our players are the tournaments organized in our TC EMPIRE Trnava club: Trnava Cup ETA U14, EMPIRE Cup ETA U16, EMPIRE Cup ITF U18 and 2x ITF EMPIRE Womens Indoor (25 000 USD prize money), ITF EMPIRE Slovak Open (100 000 USD prize money), EMPIRE Futures Trnava (15 000 USD prize money ).

We pay attention to the smallest details. If the details are neglected, the whole system can't work. We want to achieve this by high-quality tennis and fitness training process, but also by education and non-sport activities. Education and personal growth is also important in the development of every tennis player, to become a mature personality on and off the court.
