Anyone for Tennis? Brentwood School’s new Tennis Academy is officially launched in September and we can’t wait to discover the next Andy Murray or Emma Raducanu!

Individual player development will be at the heart of the Brentwood School Tennis Academy #BSTA - a programme designed for pupils of all abilities from Reception through to the Sixth Form.

Academy Head, Mark Simpson-Crick, an LTA Level 5 licensed coach, aims to develop all-round players who will not only be great ambassadors for Brentwood School, but achieve a world-class game style both on and off the tennis court.

Mark brings his international experience to the School having captained the England boys’ tennis team at the World Summer Games and taught at the world famous La Manga Club in Spain. (The La Manga Club Tennis Centre in Murcia is one of the most important and prestigious outdoor tennis centres in Europe.)

Brentwood pupils will have the opportunity to represent the School in numerous tennis fixtures during the Trinity Term, and Senior School players will compete in the National Schools Championships, Schools Team Tennis and Independent Schools Tennis Championships each year.

As well as the support of the Academy, Mr Simpson-Crick has another ace up his sleeve: Aspiring players will be eligible to join the BSTA Elite Pathway, where they will receive comprehensive support and development in order to fulfil their true potential as tennis stars of the future.

And, for those tennis-loving pupils who can’t wait until the start of the new term, Brentwood School will be serving up its first ever Tennis Academy Summer Camps open to all-ability players aged between six and 14 years. 

The Summer Camp costs £120 per week - which covers all training and competition prizes - and will run from 2nd - 5th August and the 9th to 12th August, 8.30am - 2.30pm.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the Tennis Academy, or registering for a place on a Summer Camp, should contact Mr Simpson-Crick on [email protected] for more details. 

As Mr Simpson-Crick always says: “Spectacular performances are preceded by spectacular preparation!”
