The FC** Tennis Academy based at Dukes Meadows, Chiswick, continues to be the most successful youth academy in Britain for producing players competing at all elite levels. By far, they have developed more national champions and Grand Slam main draw players than any other team of coaches in the country. Many of the country's current leading juniors train or have trained at FC** Tennis over the last 5 years.
Dukes Meadows’ FC** Tennis Academy director James Lenton said:
“It’s always wonderful when the kids get rewarded for all their hard-work throughout the year with tournament wins. I’m not surprised they’ve done so well; I see their hard work, methodical practice
and determined attitudes on a regular basis and it’s those qualities that have given them every chance to snap up the titles.
“I’m also chuffed for the parents. They make such massive sacrifice for their children and seeing them win makes it all worthwhile. Their achievements will also excite the other kids in the academy and
spur them on to wins so their names are in print next!”
James Lenton was a top ten British senior before his retirement aged 21 and has 20 years experience of which 10 years was as an LTA National coach, helping some of the best names in British Tennis
win national and international titles.
