PENDING REGISTRATION
COMING SOON: A REGISTERED INDEPENDENT SCHOOL FOR PARENTS WHO DO NOT WISH TO CHOOSE BETWEEN EXCELLENCE IN TENNIS OR EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION FOR THEIR GIFTED CHILDREN
Securing Your Place
We expect to be registered in time for September 2020;

There are currently almost 20 children who are waiting to be immediately enrolled into TA School when our registration is confirmed. In the interim period, these children are being collectively home educated by their parents - at a hall a few minutes walk from TA - while attending TA daily (for up to 3.5 hours) to train.

If you have a child who would be interested in joining TA School when registered, please contact us on 07886 455661.

Progression Benchmarks
All children under twelve will train at New Malden, broadly following an identical training regime geared towards technical and tactical development.

From the age of twelve, the most advanced players (defined as top national / international standard) will be moved into our Elite Path, with much of their training being at Ash Manor and with more individualised attention to their specific needs (including hitters and personalised fitness plans).

FEE SUPPORT

Any players eligible for LTA NAGP / Pathway funding will receive direct TA subsidies of at least equal value. Please discuss this with us.

One of the founding principles of TA is to always try to find a way to provide players with what they NEED to succeed rather than what they can AFFORD.

We try and keep our own costs down as much as possible (hence why we train in very basic facilities), and we always try to help players who want to help themselves. Older juniors can reduce their fees by assisting with coaching sessions and hitting with younger players for example.

Do speak to us if you you would like to find ways to reduce your fees as we genuinely would not want finances to be a barrier.
