WHY THE TENNIS ACADEMY?
Merchiston has developed a programme which enables pupils to combine an excellent education with unrivalled on-court opportunities, which include top quality coaching, all-encompassing sports science provision (with our Institute of Sport Scotland partners) and appropriate level tournament travel. With individually tailored tennis programmes, the standards set by the players and coaches are of the highest level, whilst still maintaining enjoyment for the game.
There are many advantages for the students of the Tennis Academy Scotland. They are:
- access to world-class facilities, including year round indoor and outdoor clay courts
- training and studies “all-in-one”
- academic tutor support
- training with like-minded players of a similar standard
- major partnerships with support providers such as Tennis Scotland and Scotland Institute of Sport
- full integration within the School
- Our experience shows that our boarding school setup is highly successful in preparing individuals for life as a professional athlete while still enjoying childhood to the full.
