SPORTIME Randall's Island and John McEnroe Tennis Academy (JMTA) will host scholarship tryouts for talented and experienced players aged six through 16, as well as a more free-form athletic combine for children ages six through 10 who are new to the game, with special outreach to communities neighboring JMTA Randall’s Island.
Scholarships will be awarded through the Johnny Mac Tennis Project.
Inspired to train young athletes in the New York City Metropolitan area, tennis icon John McEnroe believes world class tennis players can be developed in urban settings, while living at home, pursuing their education and participating in a variety of sports and extracurricular activities.
This philosophy sets (JMTA) apart from other training programs, which often require young players to relocate---with families making costly moves to be closer to training facilities or sending young players to board at these programs.
Inspired by this vision and comprised of a world-class staff of tennis, athletic training and performance coaches, JMTA delivers a comprehensive training program designed to ensure the best possible outcome for all players, including junior tournament and collegiate players, and those seeking to play on the ATP, WTA and ITF tours.
