"I was 15 when I first came to Lakeland, it was my first time out of the country, and I was welcomed with open arms. Being at Lakeland helped me improve my tennis. Thanks to Lakeland I am now playing college tennis and could not have done it without the help of Lakeland Academy of Tennis".

Victor Fernandes, Brazil

"I was fortunate to have arrived at Lakeland to train with the academy in its first year of operation. Lakeland pushed my game to a new level. I am ever grateful to the Lakeland team."

All of the above experiences, enabled me to meet people from all over the world and expand my playing and coaching ability in tennis. I cannot wait to come back and visit."
