As the governing body of junior tennis in Europe, we believe that it is Tennis Europe's responsibility to ensure that our youngest players receive the best possible support in terms of education.
Minerva's Virtual Academy: official online school partner
In August 2022, a partnership began with Minerva's Online Academy, aimed at ensuring promising young athletes do not have to sacrifice educational achievments for on-court achievements.
Minerva's Virtual Academy offers tennis players aged 11 - 18 across Europe the chance to balance their school and sporting life more evenly. The award-winning school, which teaches its students online, eliminates the need to travel to a physical location each day and frees up time and mental energy for training and tennis competitions. Combining smart virtual learning with brilliant teaching and community activities, the school also offers a unique athlete mentoring program designed to help young tennis players thrive both on and off the court. Students study the British Curriculum starting in Year 7 (11 years old) and which goes up to GCSE (14-16 years old) and A Level (16-18 years old) - both highly respected qualifications that are accepted for entry into all European universities, as well as universities in North America, South America, Asia, and Australasia.
