PREPARING YOUNG PLAYERS FOR A PRO CAREER!
Hello parents and players!
In your development as a world class competitor, you will come across tennis experiences that will inspire you and shape your aspirations. Imagine playing in a tournament that has shaped the careers of all the tennis greats for the last 30 years. Imagine following in your idol footsteps participating in the same World Paris Open he or she played.
If it sounds like a dream, it is about to come true for you.
Join us this summer in Paris at the famous Stade Francais, the original French Open site, to participate in the Paris World Open with the best in the world at U14.
This is the biggest event in the world and the only way to get in as a US Player is here.
Welcome to the U14 Paris World Open.
Travel to Paris
For a young player to access endorsed international tournaments through the typical US route takes years of accumulating points by grinding through Level 8s, 7s, 6s, 5s, Regionals and then Nationals. Let’s not even talk about the family sacrifices that need to be made for this outcome to become a reality and the educational voids that will be created during the process.
Tennis is a World Circuit with 196 countries represented. Each country has its own cultural style of play. To MASTER tennis you need to be exposed and play all these different styles...why not start when they are young?

Instead of grinding in tournaments in the middle of nowhere every weekend, SKIP THE WAIT – JUST LEAPFROG straight to the international level overnight. Exponentially improve your tennis and competitive skills by playing on different surfaces, against different styles of play, and in STIMULATING environments.
Developing into a world class player is expensive. The best way to evaluate cost over value is to see what you are getting out of an experience.
Playing the same players for 5 years without ever being exposed to the best in the world can get pricey.
Why not investing right away in the most eye opening experience a player could have to see where you fare or how to get there?
Join the best in the world for a priceless once in a lifetime opportunity.
Imagine playing Zverev, Kyrgios, Tsisipas, halep, svitolina at 14 years old when they played this event.
Even better, be the household name
everyone talks about because of the success you have the year.

Players who rise to the top need to be challenged. Geniuses are typically discovered accidentally because someone challenged them to a bigger task.
Tennis is the same, and your little superstar needs to get a taste for excellence to see if he/she likes the taste.
Talent thrives when challenged and the best performers always rise to the top when the stakes are higher.
This unique opportunity is the perfect canvas to make your mark in the Tennis World.
It is the biggest Leap a player can take.
Go from Local standout to International Superstar overnight!

Here is the deal. we have secured an exclusive partnership with the PARIS OPEN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS, the Premiere ITF tournament in the world for players under 14. This is an ITF Level 1, the equivalent of the “World Championship” for this junior category and attracts some of the best talent from around the world. Virtually all the top players in the world have played it for the last 30 years.
HINT: You can't even get invited into the tournament unless you are top 5 in your country.
Past players include the current break-through youngsters Zverev and Svitolina, but also include the likes of Kyrgios, Monfils, Ostapenko, Halep, Murray, and so many more.
Because of our unique connections and constant desire to improve and innovate the tennis experience, TENNIS CENTRAL is able to LEAPFROG a total of 8 US Nationally Ranked players into the qualifying rounds for what can be defined as the World Championship for U14. A total of 4 boys and 4 girls that are deserving of such an honor can join the trip of a lifetime.
The tennis experience will be second to none. The agenda provides the structure of a world class camp in an exclusive country club setting in the historical Park de St Cloud in Paris' 16th Arrondissement during the world championships of 14U.
The coaching experience will be unmatched with the highest-grade Tennis Central coaching staff on deck. The ratio will be 1 coach for 4 players. Coaches present will all have experience with ITF grade tennis player development. Think of them as Professional, Experienced, Certified, and Responsible.

Serious players condition their bodies seriously for events of this caliber. For this reason, we will expose each player to what a true tournament preparation looks like with a careful and methodical process to help players peak at the right time.
The entire process will last 10 days.
Accommodation will be provided with convenience in mind It is 10 minutes from our training location in a beautiful and safe neighborhood.

CULTURE & EDUCATION
We spend our youth reading books and learning about historic places we never go to until later in life. What if we chose to experience our books’ content in real life?
