Cayce Competition Training Center

Cayce, SC - The USTA South Carolina Competition Training Center (CTC) ran the third session of the fall at the Cayce Tennis and Fitness Center. The day included a full warm up, stretching, conditioning, and match play. The program was highlighted by an excellent on court presentation by Cornelius Jordan, Director of Tennis at the Country Club of Spartanburg, on point construction. The players were then put through a series of drills to emphasize the key points of the lesson.
During the lunch break, the players were treated to question and answer session with Kyle Koch and Chip Cox, current members of the South Carolina Men’s Tennis Team who are from South Carolina and alumni of the CTC program.  The CTC players had some great questions, ranging from how much conditioning and practice is involved at the collegiate level to addressing how the players keep motivated when tennis isn’t going their way.   Cox and Koch gave candid responses and provided excellent insight for the 10-15 year old players who attended the session.
After the break, players returned to the courts for match play with coaching from Jordan, Mark Smith, Director of Tennis at Pebble Creek Country Club in Taylors, and Carlos Lozano, Director of Tennis at Topspin Swim and Racquet Club in Lexington. The coaching emphasized the theme of the day of point construction.
The final session will be held at the Kiawah Island Resort November 17-18. Bill Ozaki, Director of Player Development for USTA Southern, is scheduled to speak to both the players and parents at this event.
