Tennis Academy

Kilgraston Tennis Academy

At Kilgraston we work with children of all ages and abilities, encouraging home-grown talent throughout the school.

Enjoyment of tennis is at the heart of our programme whatever a child’s age or ability. We encourage pupils to participate from a young age following our mini-tennis programme and older pupils can also improve their game through regular squads and individual lessons. Parents too, are invited to come and play on Saturday lunchtimes during term time. Girls aspiring to the performance level are invited to join our Tennis Academy.

With the help of our Performance CoacH, academy players benefit from a range of opportunities, including individual coaching, squad training, sports psychology and nutrition advice. They are also encouraged to compete in LTA sanctioned ratings and ranking tournaments alongside interschool competitions.

Our players have access to eight new astroturf courts including three specifically for tennis and a five court tennis area also used for fitness, mini hockey, netball, football and basketball. We have an indoor court in the sports hall for when bad weather stops play outside.
