At the Smash Academy we provide a pathway for each individual whether it is one who has aspirations to turn pro or simply the recreational player who really enjoys playing the game for fun.

We have identified a clear pathway for players, starting with our Mini Tennis program which we call the ‘Traffic Light System’ which is both fun and progressive for everyone involved.
