vision training

for all tennis players

Tennis is a sport that require athletes to possess excellent spatial awareness as well as the ability to read spin of a fast-moving ball. Players are continually challenged to track the ball and operate on the edge of a line.

the core six

visual skills

Understanding an athlete’s proficiency in the six core visual skills allows players, coaches, and scouts to identify and correct visual weaknesses and enhance the athlete’s performance on the court.
receiving accuracy
court awareness
spin recognition
ball tracking
convergence small
Ability to pinpoint the ball on its approach and judge speed, trajectory and spin.
divergence small
Enhances a player’s spatial awareness and ball read off the opponent’s racket.
depth small
Judge in-game distances around the edges of the court and around the net.
alignment small
Focus on the play – enabling increased accuracy in their return game.
recognition small
Capture angles, pace of ball and opponents court position. Recall shot patterns and types.
Tracking small
Anticipate where the ball will go and react quickly for an enhanced volley game.

breaking down

the edge score

The Edge Score is a comprehensive score given to each athlete based on their most recent evaluation. The score takes all visual skills into account – including convergence, divergence, depth perception, alignment, recognition and tracking. Through analysis of an athlete’s Edge Score as well as their individual scores, we identify areas of weakness and develop an appropriate training program.
convergence small

Convergence is the ability to focus on objects within close proximity and judge their movement and impact. Convergence may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Locate the ball as it approaches
  • Fast-paced play at the net
  • Process speed, trajectory, and spin
divergence small

Divergence is the ability to locate objects in the distance, impact an athlete’s ability to anticipate and react. Divergence may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Locate the ball off the server’s racket
  • Play baseline to baseline shots and estimate distance
  • Process the ball as it moves over the net
depth small

Depth perception uses both eyes to locate objects in space to judge their distance, speed, and direction. Depth perception may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Locate the ball in space as you navigate the territory lines
  • Judge spatial awareness in net play
  • Proper positioning around the baseline
alignment small

Proper alignment creates no difference between the perceived location and actual location of an object. Alignment may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Reaction time
  • Timing at the net
  • Crisp and decisive movements
recognition small

Recognition is the ability to observe, process and recall a series of visual targets, and respond properly. Recognition may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Recognize angles and pace of play
  • Pick up various shot types and angles of play
  • Follow opponent’s court position
Tracking small

Tracking allows you to process and follow an object while always monitoring all aspects of the game. Tracking may impact a player in the following ways:

  • Anticipate the action
  • React to topspin and drop shots
  • Track the shot through the air and anticipate the trajectory
