Soto Tennis Academy

At Tennis Smart we are continually looking for ways to improve the development and experience of British junior tennis players. We are therefore very excited to announce our partnership with Soto Tennis Academy to further develop the next generation of college and pro players.

Soto Tennis Academy is based in SotoGrande, Spain and led by former British number 1 doubles player and standout LSU student-athlete Daniel Kiernan.

Soto has quickly established itself as one of the leading tennis academies in tennis development on and off the court. Dan is a product of the American college system, he understands the importance of using college as a stepping stone to the Pro Tour or the working world. His knowledge and experience of the process in addition to his reputation and rapport with college coaches can help set you apart in the recruiting process. The number and quality of players looking to play college tennis is rising and its more important than ever to have respected former college players communicating with the coaches to improve your profile.

Between Tennis Smart and Soto, we’ll have the ability to even better assess and communicate to coaches the key ingredients of who you are as a player and person. Your rating, ranking, and video only tell part of your story. Work ethic, competitiveness, and attitude are an even bigger part of the equation. We will provide a supportive structure and be involved in your development before, during and after your college tennis experience.
