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 25 years, over 60% of players who have followed supervised training routines by Elson De Cantuaria and MPTA’s coaching staff have been recruited 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/Pro-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.

Pre-College Programs

MPTA Pre-College programs are reserved for the dedicated and competitive, “year-round” player whose end-goal is a spot on a college roster. Acceptance into this “Invitation Only” program is based on personal results as well as personal conduct.

To take advantage of the extra training opportunities and resources, all players are expected to attend year-round. Players who drop out of the program at any point will have to wait for the Fall Season to re-enter the program.
