Many professional tennis players from around the world, including South African number 1, Kevin Anderson (University of Illinois) went to College in America before turning pro. Players get to ensure they have some sort of education as well as training with good players and learning from quality coaches on a daily basis. These days it is a lot tougher to get into college as a result of NCAA clearing house policies becoming stricter. Players need to have the correct subjects at school as well as achieve the right grades. Once you have all the paper work you still need to have the contact to ensure that you get spotted by the right coaches. At NG Tennis we will strive to pair you with the right coach as well give you advice and assistance with regards to how you can get through the clearing house. For more details click here
