Supporting

every

step.

There was a time when talented young players had to choose between pursuing their tennis careers or remaining in education.

Tennis Smart wants to change all that.

It’s not just about a good forehand and backhand  it’s also about a helping hand.

We believe in helping players along a developmental pathway that means staying in education at every stage of their tennis development, from getting GCSEs, A Levels to gaining a scholarship to a top US university.

Tennis Smart has been created by former British No.1 in doubles Sarah Borwell, who attended the University of Houston before forging a successful career on the WTA Tour. Tennis Smart players can benefit from Sarah’s help and support from the age of 10, all the way through to making the transition from college tennis to the pros.

At Tennis Smart, we nurture young players and help them develop as people as well as athletes, because creating successful tennis players is not just about a forehand and a backhand – it’s about a helping hand as well.

A well rounded education
