Bailey Method Clinics at your Club

If you want to bring something new to your Club, then have Dave Bailey come and present a Bailey Method Footwork and Movement Clinic.

Clinics are tailored to suit any age group or any level of player. Information can be tailored to suit Singles or Doubles players


In these cutting edge Footwork and Movement Clinics , Dave will target the Fundamental (“Golden”) Contact Moves, incorporating examples of Attacking, Rallying and Defensive Footwork.

Dave Bailey will introduce his revolutionary program, and demonstrate to members how to use it in their game to rapidly improve their performance. 

Each program includes a video presentation, warm up to music and then progressive teaching of the various steps and movements, including:

  • Split Step and Unit Turn
  • Out Steps
  • Recovery Steps
  • Hitting Stances
  • Contact Moves
  • Balance Moves


The Contact Moves are taught through shadow tennis, drop or thrown fed balls and fed ball with cue words.

The number of Contact Moves taught will depend on the time frame allowed for and the standard of players in the group.

The number of people participating in the Clinics will depend on the facilities available at the Club and the needs of the participants.

General Notes:

Clinics are tailored to suit any age group or any level of player, however the On-Court Sessions work best when each group is of a similar age and standard. 

Programs can be adapted to suit the group depending on whether there are more singles or doubles players.

Programs are better received when the Club’s Head Coach is involved in the On-Court Sessions – assisting Dave and supporting the members.

Additional days can be made available for any members who would like further training in private or semi-private sessions.


“The Bailey Method is the most important breakthrough in the modern era since graphite rackets,

this is the greatest breakthrough from a footwork standpoint, that I’ve seen”
