"..tennis is not just about making Grand Slam Champions, but more importantly about learning the skills to be able to enjoy this wonderful game for the rest of your life." - Annabel Croft
The Annabel Croft Tennis Academy (ACTA) has its HQ at the home of British Tennis - The National Tennis Centre (NTC) in London. With over 350 weekly players in the programme, ACTA has built its coaching reputation on offering high quality, low ratio group tennis sessions that are suitable for recreational players all the way up to aspiring performance players. This programme prides itself on using highly qualified tennis coaches, up to date technology and well devised and consistent coaching lessons that have become a hall mark of the ACTA tennis brand.
When players visit one of our academies overseas, we hope that their on court and off court experience will be every bit as enjoyable and inspiring as our players find in our weekly programme at the NTC.

We love technology and hope you will enjoy using what we have on offer to help you understand your game.

"..our tennis holiday to the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy was everything that we anticipated and more. We loved the small coaching ratios which gave us all time with our coach and allowed us to hit more balls each session that we have ever done - its exhausting but exhilarating! We are already planning on booking our next trip!"
