Tennis at all levels
The BATD Tennis Programm promotes teaching methods adapted to each age. Mini-Tennis starts as early as 3 years old with baby tennis. 12m Mini-Tennis and 18m Mini-Tennis are the two next steps.

12m Mini-Tennis
The children discover different physical aspects of themselves - dexterity, coordination, speed, relaxation, endurance, rythm. The goal is to use a complete approach to racket sports and to master particular skills, such as balance, trajectories and the playing space. 

18m Mini-Tennis
The children play proper rallies with an intermediate ball where he or she practices, compares him/herself to others, copies and increasingly understands different aspects of the game. The goal is to focus on the outcome of their game and make that more of a priority; 18m Mini-Tennis is the last stage before passing on to a normal-sized 24m court. The evolution takes place naturally as the racket, the ball and the court have all grown progressively during the child's apprenticeship.

BATD is a leading tennis event organizer in Belgium. Since 2017 we organize the "BATD Tour". This tour includes 15,000 $ and 25,000 $ tournaments, Tennis Europe & Ten-Pro tournaments.... In 2018 we organized the World Padel Tour. In the past we also organized the 5 top ranked tennis tournaments (Codic Open, Open de la Ville de Charleroi, Aquarius Open, Belisol Open, Mosa Open), one ETA Tournament (Primerose), etc. And also 5 Davis Cup ties in the Primerose, numerous Satellite and Challenger tournaments and corporate events.
