The VA Tennis Team is a select group of young players from across the Virgin Active Racquet clubs. They’ve got enough talent, dedication and passion between them to become our future champions, and we’re going to help get them there. We’re offering a brilliant opportunity for our young players to focus on developing their potential so they can realise their ambitions in competitive tennis.
Members of VA Tennis Team will train regularly in their local Virgin Active Club, but meet other players once a year from within the national team. Together with JTC (Junior Tennis Coaching, the best high performance academy in Britain), and guest coaches, we want to provide our young members with a real shot at going professional.
Got what it takes?
Players wishing to the join VA Tennis Team who are not already enrolled onto a Virgin Active programme, will be assessed by the Racquets Manager of their local club. Their level will be assessed on court against the Virgin Active skills criteria and their LTA rating and ranking will be considered.
Where players are already enrolled onto a Virgin Active programme, they must be training to the following levels: Mini Active Aces Red 1, Mini Active Aces Orange 2, Mini Active Aces Green 2 or Yellow Ball (Active Aces).
Players must rank within either the county top 10, or the regional top 100.
All players must commit to a minimum of 2 group sessions to be eligible.
We’ll review a player’s status every September, before the start of the school year.
