  • Options for individual coaching
  • Goal-setting and tournament scheduling
  • Termly development reviews with player and parent
  • Pre-competition training camps

The Performance Programme provides for players in a variety of different situations.
The Sutton Tennis Academy Performance Programme also works with the LTA, as one of the UK’s identified centres, to deliver the AASE scheme (Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence).
