New Programs now available! It’s been an amazing experience seeing our players grow and constantly reaching new levels of their game. As always we attribute our success to our amazing team: outstanding coaches lead by the two-time Grand Slam champion, Johan Kriek; academy players and parents! Because of the high demand that we are experiencing, we are now opening more programs! The new programs will be for players who get out of school early, are home schooled, do school online or are not in school at all and want to train earlier or twice a day.
For the first time, we will also accept beginners in our early afternoon program! Our main elite afternoon program is already sold out for the next academy season, so don’t wait and take advantage of the new training options! Space is as always limited! The Johan Kriek Tennis Academy is located in Charlotte, North Carolina. Call 941.914.6054 for details!
