The TCI Tennis Academy offers world-class tennis training for all ages and skill levels. Since opening in 2014, the academy has built a reputation for nurturing and developing tennis talent. They primarily offer instruction at the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, although private lessons and coaching are offered at villas around the island.
The Academy was founded by Reinaldo “Rey” Garcia, an ITF Level 3 certified coach and former #1 Colombian junior tennis player. Rey brings a wealth of experience he gained from competing at a high level on the international tennis circuit and coaching and administration roles. His education credentials include degrees in Physical Education and Sports Training and certifications in Biomechanics and Psychology Applied to Tennis.
Rey’s goal was to create a world-class tennis training hub where players of different skill sets and levels would compete together to master the craft of tennis. His vision has come to fruition through a state-of-the-art program that provides top-level coaching, training, competition, and character-building in a welcoming environment.
Operating out of the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, TCI Tennis Academy is minutes from the white sand and sparkling turquoise waters of Grace Bay Beach. The academy is centrally located, allowing easy accessibility from nearby resorts and neighborhoods.
TCI Tennis Academy offers a range of fun, challenging, and rewarding tennis programs for budding young champions. The ITF-sanctioned Children’s Tennis Academy is a premium experience that follows the “learning to play through” technique, where children matriculate through stages that allow them to develop the technical and tactical skills needed to compete at a high level.
The Talent Recruitment Program is another junior tennis initiative that scours area schools searching for budding young players with raw abilities. This afterschool program is designed to expand the homegrown talent pool. It aims to unearth and train local players who will compete internationally for the Turks and Caicos.
TCI Tennis Academy’s Children's Tennis Camps are also incredible. The camps take place over two or three days and foster a delightful atmosphere for children to learn and play the sport while building their character and making friends. These programs, and many more, make TCI Tennis Academy an excellent place for your child to develop a love for the game of tennis.
