Tennis in Stirling continues to develop and we have recently been named as one of two LTA National Academies. This programme will predominantly support young British players to develop, but will also enhance the training environment for the University scholarship programme. This next video was filmed in our indoor tennis facility that may give a good idea of the set up:

Training for scholars is every weekday, except for match days, and they range from volume training to doubles specifics, to conditioned points and individual-specific work. Our coaches, Euan, Nick, and Mark are all heavily involved in the development of all male and female scholars, each using their many years of experience to deliver their vast knowledge and understanding to help the players improve their technical, tactical, physical and mental aspects. Their biographies, as well as the rest of the support staff team, can be found in our coaches section of the website.
