CPE Concept  

The CPE concept is derived from former professional player and world leading coach Claudio Pistolesi. With 30 years of experience in tennis 10 years as a player and 20 years as a coach the intention revolves around knowledge to help guide and develop players:

“ Having spent my life in tennis I have never stopped being a student. With this in mind the notion will be presented in the role of coaching, teaching and learning for all players. Every member who is involved in the CPE concept will be provided the opportunity to absorb this never ending concept of teaching and learning which takes place in the most fabulous sport, tennis”.

With the emphasis of ‘Tailor Made Tennis Training’ the CPE concept focuses on providing the balance for players taking care fully of the technical, tactical, physical, mental and off court decisions. Understanding the game a notion of ‘we have as many systems as we have as many players’ relates to the individualised and holistic coaching, training and education being offered to players accepted to be part of the CPE program.
