This study aimed to investigate the effect of a 12-week tennis education program on the accuracy performance of students aged 20-25 who were enrolled in the Faculty of Sports Sciences at Hitit University. A total of 40 students, comprising 23 females (age range: 20-24 years) and 21 males (age range: 20-26 years), volunteered to participate in the study. Descriptive data of the participants, such as age, height, and body weight, were used for characterization. In this study, which employed a pre-test-post-test model, the accuracy performance of both male and female participants was measured after 12 weeks of tennis training. SPSS 21 software was used for the statistical analysis of the data. Arithmetic mean and standard deviation were used for the analysis of descriptive values, while the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test was used to analyze the pre-test and post-test values of accuracy performance by gender. According to the analysis results, there was a significant difference in accuracy performance between the pre-test and post-test results in terms of gender following the 12-week tennis training program (p<0.001). In conclusion, it was observed that a 12-week tennis training program resulted in a positive improvement in tennis-specific accuracy performance in both females and males when consistently pursued. Additionally, it can be suggested that tennis-specific training, when applied with more repetitions over a longer time period, can further enhance accuracy performance by perfecting tennis-specific strokes.
