International Etcheberry Certifications

Pat, PTR International Director Inaki Balzoa and Master Pro & Clinician Dr. Louie Cap

We're proud to announce our partnership with the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) on offering International Etcheberry Certifications!

After working exclusively with Pat, PTR International Director Inaki Balzoa and Master Pro & Clinician Dr. Louie Cap are ready to expand Etcheberry Certifications all over the world!

At an international clinic, you will work with either Inaki or Louie in a 2-day course focusing on how to train your players and make them quicker, stronger, and more conditioned for their matches. To become an International PTR Etcheberry Certified coach, you will have to take a written exam and also pass an on-court test demonstrating what you have learned, the same as you do at our domestic clinics. To help you prepare, you will receive an Etcheberry Strength and Conditioning for Tennis Coaches' DVD set and an electronic study guide.

Check out the International Certification dates on the right side of the page to learn more and to contact Iñaki at or your local PTR representative to sign up!

Coaches' Testimonials

As a coach in the Los Angeles area, the players that I am training have progressed very much from the exercises and techniques that I have shown them from the clinics. In this short amount of time, their footwork has improved, they are in better overall shape, and are stronger. Due to the positive feedback I am receiving, many more people are beginning to see the significance of what I can do for them, which is inevitably going to help my business.
-- Ryan Krane
