TO OUR TENNIS ACADEMY
Founded in 1994 by Riaan Venter
our tennis academy is based at the NWU Campus in Potchefstroom
and combines intense court training with a custom‐designed academic curriculum.
The High-Performance program can accommodate 20 full-time players in a private boarding house on the doorstep of the Fanie Du Toit Sport terrain and walking distance from all shopping centres
The academy uses the four ball system to introduce tennis to players. This system is the accepted norm to teach tennis in Europe. Many of the world’s top players have come through this system. The balls are slower than normal balls giving players more time to develop perfect technique and therefore improve way quicker.
Having merged with the North-West University of Potchefstroom, the RVTA is the largest leading tennis academy in South-Africa.
The Riaan Venter Tennis Academy combines intense court training with a custom‐designed academic curriculum and boasts world class facilities and services including a Sports Science Institute, a Sports Medicine Clinic, a High-Performance Institute, mental conditioning staff, 12 Beautiful hard courts, Physiotherapy and a multitude of other student services.
Throughout the year the RVTA undertakes numerous tours – to local events, Junior ITF tournaments as well as Future and Satellite tournaments, nationally and internationally.
The RVTA strives to be instrumental in developing tennis on all levels. Wheelchair tennis players of all ages have long been looking for a place where they can train and play outdoors. To meet this challenge, the RVTA offers tennis programs specifically designed for the wheelchair player.
