"When I was 18 and among the best junior players of my generation, and after having followed the traditional federal training system, I decided to opt for a university curriculum in the USA, unlike most of my fellow players who, for the most part, had decided to attempt the professional circuit at the end of high school. It was, without a doubt, the best decision of my life. A unique adventure which allowed me to pursue several of my dreams: live an outstanding human experience, pursue a high standard University education, play on the professional circuit and become an entrepreneur.
For the past 20 years, I have decided to share this dream by dedicating my life to training and educating young players to build their future, and by becoming a pioneer in the placement of players in American universities.
Today, I am proud to see to what extent the many students who have gone through our educational system, have fort he most part, succeeded beyond our expectations. Not a day goes by without hearing from one of them: whether they have become a sports journalist, a financial analyst at Wall street, a Manager for the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, coach, an entrepreneur, or a professional tennis players, all have in common to have made the decision to play collegiate tennis in the USA. To enable our students to access this pathway of excellence has been our ambition for the last 20 years."

Headed by a former French professional tennis player, the academy is proud of its colours! And proud to offer quality teaching, a 'savoir-faire' and a 'savoir être' à la française.
