PTCA – Accreditation

To be able to keep a high level and at the same time have a flexibal and strong organisation,  PTCA-Academy is accrediting Institutions and Academies to become a PTCA-Center or Base with the main reason to develope the structure of  PTCA and govern the aims and image of our association.

Please feel free to join the group of centers. The accreditation policy program is developed by the PTCA Academy Accreditation & Certification Board (PAACB). Please be aware of that the accreditation of a center/base is not the same as a Tennis Academy, certified by PTCA (please visit “Certified Tennis Academies”).  Read about the standards for applying for an official status or affiliation.
