Tennis Scholarship in the USA
Have you ever heard of Andy Roddick, Arthur Ashe or Althea Gibson? Do you know what they all have in common? They were all student-athletes at American colleges in the early stages of their careers. This enabled them to keep playing Tennis at a highly competitive level all the while earning a widely-recognized degree. A tennis scholarship that perfectly suits your needs will bring you one step closer to your dream.
The thing about colleges in the US is that training sessions fit around the student-athlete’s schedule. This creates the perfect environment for students to excel in their sport with world-class facilities and equipment. In addition, it encourages and pushes them to excel academically. Their programs are designed so that students can succeed in both, providing they have the right mentality and drive to do so. Does this sound like something you would like to be a part of? Then feel free to contact us and talk to one of our (ex-student-athlete) sports consultants to help you start the process.
