Events, Associates and Travel Insurance

At Stars and Stripes Tennis Recruitment, I recognise the importance of maximising your international tennis playing experience. Competing in international events adds ‘weight’ to your college application and scholarship process.

I am available to travel to overseas ITF events with players individually or as a group. I regularly attend events in the U.K. throughout the year, especially British Tours, ITFs, British Nationals, Grade 2s (U18s and U16s) and various Grade 3s.

Getting to know players I represent and seeing them compete is key to a quality recruitment process.
