Swerve Tennis Academy is a Boston-based instructional academy whose goal is to spark a lifelong enjoyment of tennis. While participation in other sports is fluctuating, the growth of tennis has been steady: 31% increase in participation from the years 2000 to 2012, the highest growth among a list that includes football, baseball, soccer, and hockey.
For multi-sport athletes, tennis develops agility, balance and coordination skills that can translate elsewhere. Recognizing the importance of cross-training, we partner with Sidekick Sports Academy to develop well-rounded athletes.
Over 18 million athletes in 2016 played tennis, making it "the sport of a lifetime" - are you ready to join them on the court?

It was great for my daughter to play tennis all summer on such great facilities on the college campus. My daughter has said how much she can see herself on that campus.
We got so much cool gear…the climacool Adidas shirt is now my favorite match shirt.
I couldn’t believe I moved up 2 groups throughout the week. My favorite part was the ladder matches
