What is unique About me

At the age of 73, I am very active in teaching all ages and abilities.
When I gets a chance from my busy schedule I play in USTA Super Senior tournaments.

I played in numerous exhibitions and doubles against former world number one Ilie Nastase.

I work out 5 days per week and you’ll even find me in occasionals Sprint Triathlon.
I also teach my tennis students and the general public of the benefits of adhering to a plant-based foods lifestyle.

I am a living proof that eating whole plant foods is the nutritional way to vibrant health and vitality.I’ve taught at many prestigious tennis clubs over the years.

Some of the better known are: the Bronxville Field Club, Bronxville, N.Y., Ocean Edge Resort, Cape Cod, Brewster, MA, the Naples Grande Resort, Naples, FL., and the Ritz Carlton, Naples, FL.

It’s my teaching ability that really sets me apart from other tennis instructors. Tennis players from novice to professional have used my guidance to pinpoint their errors and correct them. I believe I have been gifted with an eye that enables me to detect flaws that cause inconsistency.

This Is My mantra

I always say, “In order to take your tennis game to the best of your ability, it requires 3 things “
Doesn’t matter the level you are right now, you will need these 3 things in order to overcome adversity in tennis games, You will get all of them at CTW academy

Fundamentally Sound Techniques

The more consistent your strokes are the more balls your opponent has to hit, this tilts the odds in your favor


If you never run out of steam you’re creating the proper environment for winning

Mental Toughness

The mental part of your game can offset the other two areas when applied correctly.

Why CTW Academy

I developed CTW Academy after nearly 35 years of teaching tennis. I’ve had the opportunity to be personally taught by probably the best tennis mind to grace the planet, Vic Braden.

As well as many top fitness, nutrition and mental coaches including, Pat Etcheberry, Doug Graham and Tom Veneziano.

Throughout my 45+ years of teaching I’ve had the opportunity to work with a wide range of players, from outright beginners to Tour Level professionals.

This has enabled me to experience firsthand, the types of problems encountered by many different types of players, men and women.
In 1997 while teaching at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, in Naples, Florida, my students kept making a recurrent remark.

They typically would say something like, “Wow, that was a great lesson, you’ve taught me things I’ve never heard before, I’m heading home tomorrow, I hope I can remember these points when I get back home.”

So, on the advice of my wife, who said, “Tom you need to put these tips on video tape.” I started filming my first video, back in 1997.

Now with the Internet, I feel blessed to be able to help tens of thousands of tennis players from all over the world. You know, tennis is a lot like life and there can be many hard knocks along the way.

My goal is to help you shorten the learning curve tremendously, and avoid the hard knocks by teaching you how to recognize and fix your mistakes for good!

I sincerely hope you find these courses helpful in your journey to be the best you can be at this great game. To your tennis success. – Tom Avery
