Welcome to THE TENNiS APP™
Tennis in your pocket.™
THE TENNiS APP brings all things tennis to the iPhone and iPod Touch. We have professional interactive video and instruction from Grand Slam winning pros, ATP and WTA rankings, and live tennis news.
ALL THE ESSENTIAL SHOTS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
THE TENNiS APP gives you all the essential shots: topspin forehand, backhand, two-handed backhand, slice forehand and backhand, approaches, volleys, half-volleys, serves, overheads, and more. Even a few trick shots for fun!
BREAK IT DOWN
We feature detailed instruction from Bob and Mike Bryan, the #1 doubles team in the world. Bob and Mike are winners of eight Grand Slam doubles titles, including the 2010 Australian Open. You can also download additional content from other top-ranked touring pros.
THE TENNiS APP teaches correct technique through interactive video. You control the playback for in-depth analysis and visual reinforcement. Each shot is broken down into its component phases, and each phase features looped animation or photos combined with instruction from the very players that are defining the top of the game.
Whether it is the split step, first movement, grip change, pivot, load, backswing, acceleration, contact, wrist roll, follow through, or recovery, THE TENNiS APP breaks down the essential components of each shot into bite-sized chunks.
Each analysis begins with a video overview of the entire stroke. The stroke is then divided into its own animation sequence, complete with looping video and key Smart Points™. For example, the Smart Points™ for the contact phase of a stroke might be:
"Head Steady. Eyes on the ball. Body stays sideways and balanced. Contact out in
THE TENNiS APP’s unique real-animation control allows you to slow down the action by adjusting playback speed. You can also pause the lesson and step frame by frame to study every detail. And our Smart Zoom™ automatically zeros in on the most important portion of the animation or photo.

With THE TENNiS APP you control what you download to your iPhone. There are dozens of free lessons, hints, and Smart Points™ available, with more being added all the time. Choose from our ever expanding collection: Topspin Forehands, Topspin Backhands, Two-handed Backhands, Slice Backhands, Forehand Volleys, Backhand Volleys, Two-handed Volleys, Serves, Slice Approaches, Two-handed Backhand Approaches, Topspin Backhand Approaches, Slice Forehand Approaches, Topspin Forehand Approaches, Grips, Backhand Half-Volleys, Forehand Half-Volleys, Overheads, Backhand Serve Returns, Forehand Serve Returns, Two-Handed Backhand Serve Returns, Backhand Slice Serve Returns, and even Trick Shots.
THE TENNiS APP allows you to stay up to date on the latest in tennis through moderated news, tweets, and web links. The best of tennis info is delivered to your iPhone daily.
Watch the rankings to track who is on top: ATP Singles, ATP Doubles, ATP Doubles Teams, WTA Signles, WTA Doubles, and Points Race. THE TENNiS APP rankings also include player photos so you’ll always know who’s who. And you can quickly find your favorites with the ability to sort by rank, name, or country. The rankings are automatically updated when they come out each week.
THE TENNiS APP SPEAKS LEFTY
If you are left-handed, you are often forced to mentally transpose instruction from that shown by typically right-handed players. Not so with THE TENNiS APP. We have the unique ability to automatically flip real-animations and photos to depict either right or left-handed examples.
