Academy - Links


We only select Students who have a will to win and enjoy playing the game.  It is our role to nurture this dedication and competitive spirit to try to ensure that Students will continue to enjoy their tennis throughout their future career.  We do this by conducting training in a serious, but also enjoyable environment. We also encourage social interaction with fellow pupils at Ellesmere College.
