Academy History

Annabel Croft Playing Tennis

The Annabel Croft tennis academy was founded in January 2009 by the former British No.1 and Tennis TV Presenter Annabel Croft and her husband Mel Coleman. In April 2009, Annabel and Mel recruited Steve Cockell as director of coaching and the company is now owned equally by these 3 individuals.

Now approaching our 5th anniversary this April, the academy goes from strength to strength with over 320 weekly players participating in its program at the National Tennis Centre and 2 prestigious academies at 5* resorts in Cyprus and the Algarve.

The Academy HQ is a small office in Mortlake, SW14 where a our administration takes place and all bookings and enquiries are directed to. The Academy also has a partnership with Luxury Tennis Tours to run its overseas tennis holidays business with details of these services featured on www.annabelcrofttennisholidays.com 

With an expanding team of over 22 individuals actively working for the company, ACTA is justifiably proud of its success in the first 5 years and hopes to see players enjoying and gaining from its coaching methods for many years to come!
