The 3/4 court stage is the most important stage of progressive development as the court dimensions are adjusted smaller but with a similar ratio as the full court. This step helps ensure the development of an all court game style. The key is to develop the same tactics as full court tennis along with the associated techniques.

This program is for players with little (Beginner 2) or no (Beginner 1) playing experience.
