The initial concept of the Evolution Tennis Academy was formulated in 2001 by James Robinson, a former ITF and IWTF Professional and Team GB athlete.


Following an extended period of research and development the Evolution Tennis Academy was finally created in late 2009. We were officially registered with Companies House, Cardiff in the UK on 6th September 2010 trading under:


Evolution Tennis Academy offers all players from complete novices to seasoned professionals an opportunity to learn, develop and master their tennis skills in a highly professional, safe and fun environment. These factors assure the type of sustained improvement needed to get to grips with one of the worlds most demanding sports.

Our highly motivated team of experts have put together a range of tennis products and services specifically chosen and designed to meet the exacting standards of quality, value and professionalism synonomous with the academy and the founders ethos:

Tennis isn't everything .... but it means the World to us!
