Pre-College Programs

2018 – 2019 MPTA Pre-College Program

Jump Start Your College Tennis Preparation

It takes about 5-8 years of high quality training for most tennis players to achieve top college playing levels. Let Matchpoint design the proper routine for you during this period. In the past 15 years over 60% of players who have followed supervised training routines by Elson De Cantuaria and MPTA’s  coaching staff have gone on to play college tennis. At MPTA we approach training with long-term goals in mind for our students. We fully understand that a long time commitment to training and development is essential to produce high-level tennis players.

Special Pre-College/Pre-Tour Tennis Programs

These programs are designed for players who are looking for a program to help them get into specific colleges and players/parents with defined professional playing aspirations.
