Established in 2010 by Dan and Vicki Kiernan, STA aims to provide an environment that inspires and enables our athletes to maximise their potential.
STA offers Full Time Training Programmes to performance players, with availability for competition-level players and groups to access the Academy’s year-round outdoor training on European Red clay courts and American-style hard courts.
As a highly personalised and boutique-style tennis academy, our team of expert coaches deliver individualised programmes to players in a robust team environment. We are responsible for ensuring that our players see measurable outcomes in their performance through our structured and systematic approach, and give our players the opportunities, tools and resources to make these improvements.
We are also proud to offer players a unique balance of tennis and education through our joint programmes with our Academy partners. Many players have graduated from the Academy having gained scholarships with American Universities, allowing their studies and tennis journey to continue.
STA works closely with our partners to offer the best experiences for our players:
Sotogrande International School – Elite Sports: Tennis & Education Programme
Mentally Tough Tennis – Sports Psychology
Tennis Smart – American University Scholarship Support
Jorge Espada – Sports Physiotherapy
