Enrich Your Life
To enrich the lives of all those we meet through tennis and to enhance the value of the sport through tennis.
Starting with service
There are various theories, but tennis is the imperative form of the French word "tenez" (tenir/grab).
The name comes from the fact that he called out to the opponent, "Please take this ball".
What is the beginning of tennis?
As you know, tennis begins with [service].
Service means to serve the other player.
Tennis is a sport that literally begins with "doing something for others". You put the ball in the place where the opponent is waiting for it and give it to him. If you do not put the ball into the opponent's service box so that he can return it, tennis does not begin.
If the player fails to make both services, the point is given to the player, saying, "I am sorry that I could not deliver the ball."
It is important to put the ball in a place where the opponent can return it, not to take the ace. This is the concept of tennis that we cherish, and this is why we have chosen tennis, which begins only when there is an opponent and the opponent is respected, as a means of education and training for our own "child-rearing" and "training to cultivate wisdom that enriches people."

Tennis is an international sport that can be enjoyed by everyone, and TTC offers a variety of programs that can be enjoyed by everyone from young children to the elderly. Our programs incorporate the latest teaching methods and our extensive experience, allowing you to choose the lessons that are best suited to your individual needs.

We also offer a fun filled short tennis program for younger children, making it a place for parents and children of all ages to have fun. We also offer wheelchair tennis lessons.
REACH your MAX
Global Player and Leader Development
The TTC Junior Program provides an optimal environment (lesson content, age groups, equipment) and was the first in Japan to adopt a program based on international standards (ITF International Tennis Federation TENNIS PLAY & STAY) to develop the right skills at the right time for your child. The Junior Program is based on the philosophy of "Reach Your Max" and is designed to maximize the abilities of all juniors. At the same time, the program also emphasizes the importance of Japanese civility, with a focus on teaching Japanese children how to become world-class athletes. The TTC Players Program also provides multifaceted support to develop and strengthen international players so that they can compete to the best of their abilities on the international stage.
Coach Education and Training
The "Sports Science Seminar for Tennis Coaches" has been held every year since 1988, and is held in cooperation with the JTA. We have invited Richard Schonborn, Leif Dahlgren, Louis Cayer, Ann Quinn, and others to hold seminars. In addition, several "Sports Seminars" are held each year to bring together instructors and participants for discussion and exchange, providing tennis coaches with theoretical and practical training methods that are useful in the field.
Sport Medicine and
Science Research and Support
In order to advance tennis technology, the TTC actively promotes the introduction of sports medicine as well as extensive experience to provide high quality instruction. We also provide rational and effective instruction and training based on data from proprietary fitness tests that have been conducted by our fitness department for many years.
From Recreational Sports to the Paralympics
Since its inception, the center has focused on promoting wheelchair tennis. From recreational player to Paralympian -friendly programs, there is a program for every purpose.
The facility is of course barrier-free, but as a barrier-free service for the mind, small children are always welcome to come and play with us. It is a wonderful tennis center where you will often see the door open for wheelchair players.
Main History in Japan
Wheelchair tennis began in Southern California in 1976 as tennis with two bounces.
1983 Japanese athletes in wheelchairs participated in the Honolulu Marathon in Hawaii and received instruction in wheelchair tennis there, and the following year it was incorporated into rehabilitation programs in Japan. In 1985, the World Team Cup, an inter-country team competition to determine the strongest nation in the world, was held with the participation of six countries (including Japan).
Eighteen years have passed since then, and the Japanese men's team of Akio Yamakura, Satoshi Saida, and Shingo Kunieda became the first Asian nation to win the championship at the 19th World Team Cup in Poland in 2003, which was hailed as a "historic accomplishment" by the world. There were a total of 31 participating men's teams. At the 2004 Athens Paralympics, Shingo Kunieda and Satoshi Saida won the gold medal by defeating Australia in the semifinals in a fierce battle that lasted over two and a half hours, and then beating France in the final.
In June 2007, at the World Team Cup Tennis Championships in Sweden, the Japanese men's team was the No. 1 seed for the first time in the 23rd year of the event. The Japanese men's team then shrugged off the pressure of being the No. 1 seed and defeated their archrivals, the Netherlands 2-0 to become the world champion nation for the second time in four years among 37 participating countries.
and its future.
A supportive form of nurturing.
TTC constitutes various associations with its members, including "Supporting Associations," and contributes to activities that support the future of the community and children. We provide opportunities to deepen friendship and enjoy daily life with sports through tennis with everyone who supports such activities to nurture the future of the city.
