We believe that for well-rounded, happy and healthy individuals, success will follow, on and off the court.

Responsibility and independence is encouraged for all student-athletes to create these life skills for later life.

We offer a number of boarding solutions to Full Time Players during term time. Accommodation for access players is also available subject to availability.

“The Academy encourages you to be responsible for your actions on and off the court and independent thinking, which is an important transferable skill for my life after tennis.”

- Peter Bothwell, STA Pro Squad (centre)

Sotogrande Area

We offer an unrivalled location amongst some of the finest golf courses, polo fields and padel tennis courts in the world. Based at El Octagono Club in Sotogrande, we are just minutes away from the beach and all the water sports there, as well as all the bars and restaurants in Sotogrande Marina.

STA is easily accessible from all over the world. We are one hour’s drive from Malaga airport and 25 minutes from Gibraltar airport. With 325 days of sunshine on average a year, time on our clay and hard courts is never an issue. We also offer several accommodation options, within easy access to the club. Our most popular option is self-catering apartments in the Marina which are just a few minutes’ walk from the courts.


Be KOOL Programme

Players participate in activities to widen their breadth of life experience in order to ‘Keep Options Open for Life’.

These opportunities range from learning to string your own rackets, to writing blogs for the website, to participating in nutrition workshops. Each player must complete a checklist of activities before ‘graduating’ from STA. Our programme is designed to provide student-athletes with the transferable skills to be successful in life.
