Come be a part of international high performance junior tennis in New Orleans. Join us in our 27th year of serving junior development tennis in the New Orleans community. We pride ourselves at being a different kind of tennis program in NOLA: by hosting exchange students to play with our academy students; bringing UTR Tournament events to the NOLA tennis scene; and by recruiting nationally and internationally recognized coaches. We operate at the top tennis facilities in the greater New Orleans area. I am a USPTR Certified Professional with over 27 years of experience in teaching tennis to adults and juniors. I have promoted twelve world ranking tournaments for the USTA Pro Circuit and co-hosted the pro exhibition match between Martina Navratilova and Monica Seles. In my professional tennis career, I held a world ranking on the ATP Tour and played Division I tennis at the University of Tennessee. I graduated from RAU University with a degree in sports management and marketing from my native South Africa.
