Tennis Smart

IDK Tuition is partnered with Tennis Smart, the UK's #1 access point for tennis scholarships at U.S universities. 


Tennis Smart is the vision of former British No.1 in doubles Sarah Borwell, who attended the University of Houston before forging a successful career on the WTA Tour. Every year, hundreds of players benefit from Sarah’s help and support: Tennis Smart athletes range from age 10, all the way through to making the transition from college tennis to the pros.

At Tennis Smart, we nurture young players and help them develop as people as well as athletes, because creating successful tennis players is not just about a forehand and a backhand – it’s about a helping hand as well.
