We are tennis, and much more. We see tennis as a vehicle to success, on and off the court, whatever the player’s individual pathway.

We provide the perfect environment for passionate tennis players aiming for a future in the game, whether U.S. College, European University, or the Professional Tour.

Access Weeks are also available for those looking to complement their current programme in a bespoke and personalised way.

“STA have supported me above and beyond. They believed in me before and after I graduated from US College and gave me what I needed to go onto the Professional Tour.”

STA values are engrained in the players’ behaviours, thus setting the culture required to succeed on and off the court.

Players are encouraged to ‘Control the Controllables’ and provide unconditional effort at all times.



Individualised performance planning is carried out 3 times per year between our Full Time Players and coaches to ensure clarity on where they are, where they want to go and how they are going to get there.

The Academy uses Google Drive to measure and monitor player progress efficiently and effectively, and to stay connected with players, parents and staff.
