Abstract
This article presents evidence of effectiveness of 12-week concentration training program

with brainwave biofeedback on concentration ability and tennis performance. Eight male

tennis players were divided into two groups (Experimental and Control). Experimental

group (n = 4) completed a series of training program using the Q-Jump computer

system. Experimental task was one-set tennis singles with no-ad scoring system. The

participants responded to the Korean version of the Test of Attentional and Interpersonal

Style (TAIS) before and after the experiment. The results revealed that the concentration

training program (a) was effective in improving concentration intensity and duration, (b)

led to significant impact on attentional style, and (c) helped to improve tennis

performance. Correlational analyses revealed negative relationships between concentration

indices and unforced errors. Overall, these findings suggest that concentration is critical

mental skill in tennis and can be improved through systematic training program.
