London Tennis AcademyHere at Bodyswot Tennis we’re passionate about seeing our students’ progress and we are proud to say that we have encouraged and nurtured some very talented tennis players over the years, which inspired us to create our very own London tennis academy.

Bodyswot Tennis Academy is aimed at children and young adults aged 6 to 18 who demonstrate a real talent and the same passion for tennis that all our coaches share. Membership is by invitation only and applicants are required to undertake a preliminary assessment with a coach; only those who show raw talent, motivation and a genuine desire to work hard as part of a team are invited to join.
