Welcome to SotoTennis Academy!

SotoTennis Academy is based in Sotogrande on Spain's sunny Costa del Sol. Led by former British Number 1 Doubles player Daniel Kiernan, STA has established a reputation for tennis excellence and sporting development in Spain and Europe, attracting high-quality coaching staff and players.

Here at STA we offer full-time tennis training programmes combined with education to players aged 12 and above as well as options of weekly/monthly access to supplement your programme at home.


STA offers:

  • Full-time training programmes for players aged 12 and above. We place great emphasis on 'the individual' with tailored programmes that include expert coaching and fitness, full access to facilities including our European red clay and hard courts, and our ATP, WTA and ITF travelling squads.

  • A bespoke academic programme in partnership with Sotogrande International School for student-athletes aged 12 and above to work alongside training programmes.

  • Supplement programmes for those looking for a clay-court training base available all year round. Tailored packages are available for players and performance centres requiring that specific intense training.

  • Access to STA's tournament travelling squad, who are on the road with our experienced coaches for up to 25 weeks a year.

  • Camps and access weeks all year round.

We have several full-time touring players currently running their programmes out of the Academy, and many others using it as an access base, such as:

  • Australian Open Boys Doubles Champions Joshua Ward-Hibbert & Liam Broady. Josh moved to Junior World number 12 from 600 since joining STA and is currently playing on the pro tour.

  • Liam Broady reached World Junior Number 3, and is Junior Wimbledon 2010 Boys Doubles Champion and 2011 Boys Finalist and US Open Boys Finalist. Liam is currently playing on the pro tour.

  • Andrew Fitzpatrick has risen 800 places in the ATP rankings since joining STA.

  • UK National Junior champions Luke Hammond and Savannah Yardley, as well as many other up and coming players from Europe and beyond.

> Philosophy

We aim to provide an environment that inspires and enables individuals to maximise their own potential through hours of hard work and dedication.


The aim is for our professional players to become self-sufficient and grow in their own way, while being a part of team. Players are encouraged to work together which we believe can only be a good thing in what is already an incredibly tough sport. We will give them the tools and resources to make these improvements, but ultimately we allow our players to take the lead, so that they learn.
