Tennis is not just an exercise, but a competition. It is meant to be played. Many junior players avoid critical match play and only focus on training and taking part in the more social classes some clubs and academies offer. At its core, our academy stresses competition. Players will never be complete until they learn how to win in match play. Many players train and drill with pros and end up with nice form and swing paths, but can never win matches. In tennis, it takes much more than just technique to become a successful tennis player.
Once again, this year we our extending our USTA play initiative. Juniors in our summer and fall academies will earn $20 credits towards future services for every USTA tournament they play in. This helps families with the cost of indoor tournaments.
We have posted tournaments this year that Staley Tennis staff will be in attendance to offer coaching and support for our academy players. To check out these future USTA tournaments, click HERE.
