Tennis Academy is now Aforza
Our new name, Aforza, is jam packed full of meaning. It comes directly from the Italian word for strength — forza — and is also inspired by effervescence, which means vivacious, enthusiastic, and bubbly. Bubbly, of course, representing our iconic dome facility that is known as “the bubble”. The name is strong and sporty, but fun — just like us!
The Tennis Academy has been much more than a tennis club for me. Since becoming a member 10 years ago, I have met so many people that I now consider my good friends. I have travelled to tennis tournaments with them as well as many a pro tournament. Due to the quality of the coaching staff my game has improved as well (I still thank Ralph everyday for helping me switch to a two handed backhand)
"Why would I ever go somewhere else when I am so satisfied with The Tennis Academy? It is one of the best places to play. You can't go wrong! You feel welcomed from the time you walk through the front door, get to your tennis court to when you go upstairs to the restaurant."
"The Tennis Academy is our home away from home. My son trained here his whole junior career and is now playing at a Div 1 school in Illinois. My 10 year old daughter also plays and it was never a question where she would train. Ralph, Jeff, Alex and Marc have always gone above and beyond for our family and have greatly improved the high performance programs over the years.".
