The Johan Kriek Tennis Academy is the finest training available for aspiring athletes in the field of youth tennis. We are committed to developing the talent of today’s rising tennis stars and those that will be the stars of tomorrow.
Our tennis academy is different than other tennis academies out there. One major difference is that our coaching staff is spearheaded by an internationally renowned tennis player, Johan Kriek. Johan Kriek won the Australian Open in 1981 and 1982 and he is currently the only professional player at his level who is dedicated to teaching students. If you want to excel in a sport, learn from a pro. As a tennis coach, Johan Kriek knows the skills and techniques it takes to be successful in the competitive tennis world and he is passing down all of his secrets to his students.
Our tennis school provides intense training that includes not only practice and drills but also combines fitness and mental training that will help young players reach their peak on the tennis court as well as in life. Each player has unique needs, so our program is individualized for each of our students. Parents and students are always pleased with their experiences at the Johan Kriek Tennis Academy. Junior tennis students are delighted when they quickly master difficult techniques they never thought they could conquer. Parents appreciate the one-on-one attention their students get from Kriek. His vast tennis knowledge, winning personality and sense of humor connects with – and gets response from – the children and teens he coaches.
The Johan Kriek Tennis Academy is located in Roanoke, Virginia. We offer a full academy training five days a week as well as week-long summer tennis camps. We provide a professional and positive environment where goals are achieved, personal confidence is heightened, lasting friendships are made, and expectations are exceeded.
