In 1985, off a beaten path in Haines City, Florida, at the luxurious Grenelefe Golf & Tennis Resort, Director of Tennis, Rick Macci, literally created a “miracle in the orange groves” with his passion, knowledge and drive to develop young athletes and change lives.
The Rick Macci Academy (RMTA) evolved from the enormous success of 15 year old, Tommy Ho and 12 year old, Jennifer Capriati, still to this day, the youngest to win the Boys and Girls USTA National 18 & under Championships. The Macci name and reputation is the leader in real junior development.
The biggest difference between then and now is Rick is available to help any player of any level one-on-one. From 3-years olds to touring pros, Rick is the ONLY world-class coach at an academy to teach anybody…any day…one-on-one.
The Academy never has more than 50 students to insure the highest quality and personal attention. Rick’s teaching philosophy is what separates the Macci System from all the rest. It is Rick, one-on-one and a boutique Academy for a great drilling, grooving match-play, and fitness.
RMTA offers the best high performance training in the world. Rick Macci along with sports science guru, Brian Gordon, provide a One/Two Punch that is recognized as the best in the tennis industry.
