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)

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.
