Bolton Arena Regional Player Development Centre has several links with local , national and global educators, in order to developer our Academy players off the court, in addition to our on-court support. Take a look at the educational institutions below to find out more.
Bolton Arena Tennis Academy are working in partnership with Bolton School and online educators Minerva's Virtual Academy, to offer a range of options for the players personal needs.
The link with Bolton school offers pupils the chance to join the "elite athlete" programme, which allows the players to build a timetable to suit the demands of training during school time and travel to tournaments. With this programme, the pupil also gets a mentor to help support the journey as an elite athlete.
Bolton School has had athletes across different sports who then go on to succeed at international level.
