Academy - Selection for PTF Clay


PTF Clay Court Academy only selects 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.  

We only choose the top 16 players and we select on the basis of future potential to make it as a professional in the game.  Prospective Students should apply to a selection weekend if they can meet the following minimum criteria:

Will to win and improve
Enjoys the game
Has received at least 2 years of intensive coaching
Knowledge of all basic shots and scoring system
Studied English for at least 2 years and is speaking, reading and writing at a good level
Ability to satisfy the UK Border Agency children’s student visa requirements

We hold selection weekends at regular intervals throughout the year.  Details and arrangements for the next available selection weekend are available from the Academy.  

Once a place on a selection weekend is confirmed, our Moscow representative will assist parents in preparing their child’s visa application for submission to the British Embassy in Moscow.  Parents travelling with their children to the selection weekend must also have their own visitor visa.  

If an offer is made to a Prospective Student for admission to the Academy and School, then once the offer is accepted, our Moscow representative will assist Parents to prepare their child’s long-term study visa application.
