FORZA Sports International was launched in September 2010 by director and founder, Hendri Meyer with the vision to ultimately be a world class training academy, empowering athletes and following a holistic training approach. Our main focus is not just winning and working hard, we also place great emphasis on the mental, emotional, spiritual and social wellbeing of all our athletes.
Director, Hendri Meyer has vast experience, already tracking back 21 years where he was coached as a junior tennis player by world renowned Danny Sullivan, former ATP Professional player. Under the coaching of Danny Sullivan, Hendri achieved his highest ranking of nr 5 in South Africa. He regularly competed and won matches against current professional players Kevin Anderson, Fritz Wolmarans, Ruan Roelofse, Izak van der Merwe and the likes.
Hendri moved to the UK from 2004 to 2009 where he worked together with Clinton Lamprecht, also former ATP professional player and founder of Tennis England, one of the largest and most successful tennis academies in the UK. He assisted them in expanding and growing the company. In 2009 Hendri returned to South Africa where he partnered with and was mentored by former World doubles champion and silver medalist winner at the Olympic games, Pietie Norval.
We stand for integrity, loyalty, character and having a great attitude no matter what the outcome. At FORZA Sports International we understand that 80% of success is mental and only 20% mechanical, thus we place most of our emphasis working on the players’ subconscious mind for peak performance and then to reach their full potential.
All our coaches are certified with the International Tennis Federation and also registered and approved by Tennis South Africa with the necessary qualifications.
Our goal is to establish a global entity that will serve and empower one billion lives through sport.
