NEWS — LTA & Tennis Scotland Announcement
On 12 June 2018, British Tennis announced Tennis Scotland at the University of Stirling as one of two National Academies for tennis, a major milestone in the development of the Lawn Tennis Association’s ten-year Performance Strategy for British Tennis.
The National Academies will play a crucial role in the implementation of a new seamless player pathway, which sits at the heart of the new Performance Strategy and aims to make Britain one of the most respected nations in the world for tennis player development.
This is tremendous news for Beaconhurst School, as partners of the University of Stirling, and we look forward to welcoming and supporting some of the best young tennis players in Britain.
