Please email to book your time with Geoff Pearce


My goal has always been to enable every player to maximize his or her potential while building all the right techniques and allowing the player to develop their own style. My goal is to provide our juniors with world-class coaching and training, which will allow them to get the most out of their tennis. Become a city, provincial or national champion, get a tennis scholarship to the US and play with the best in the world.

Our Philosophy is to Respect ALL!! Fear None!!
Players respect our coaches; coaches respect our players.
Love tennis, be passionate.
We work hard as a team to establish goals and accomplish them, all in a positive, nurturing environment.

Our vision is to build a true lifetime sport and education project for student athletes. Our tennis-study program will enable our students to combine intensive training sessions and tournaments with an adapted school curriculum.

National Tennis School

Our Daily Covid-19 Online Screening Check-in :

Online Covid-19 Online Information Guidelines will be sent to you once you register.

Students will need to wash or disinfect their hands before and after each lessons.

  • All our ball hoppers and touchpoints will be sprayed by our top-of-the-line products that kill the COVID-19 virus within 5 min of spraying it with our electric spraying machine.
  • We will be using the 6:1 ratio given to us by the Tennis Canada guidelines, and practice 6-feet-apart distancing at all times. Masks do NOT have to be worn during tennis lessons. If students cannot keep to a 2m/6-foot separation, then they will have to wear a mask while on the court, or they will be asked to leave.
  • Once the tennis lesson is finished and students are still on court, all students must put on their masks and continue to wear them until outside the TCWO gate.
  • Students are not to be dropped off early or stay late.
  • Parents, friends and family are NOT allowed in the clubhouse or on the tennis courts.
  • All students who enter TCWO main gate must wear a mask indoors and outdoors until they have arrived on their assigned court. On court, our tennis pros will take the student’s temperature before each lesson with a touchless temperature thermometer (Normal Temp 36.1-37.2). Covid health questions will be asked on court if students have not completed the online health check.
  • Tennis pros and TCWO will clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and will disinfect tennis balls and baskets between different lessons.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes in your elbow

We will require all sick children and staff to stay home.

  • Parents must understand the importance of keeping children home when they are sick. If they arrive to lessons sick (fail our daily health test or temperature), then they will be sent home.
  • · Communicate to your tennis pro any symptoms or sickness and stay in touch with NTS and TCWO management.


Intensive tennis training without compromising your education. Whether you dream of becoming a professional tennis player or whether you wish to reach your full potential in tennis and studies, we will equip you with all of the necessary skills.

Your success is our mission. There are no shortcuts to success; working hard in a consistent way pays off.

Determination, passion, integrity, perseverance, constantly seeking improvement, being daring and ambitious – these are our driving forces.

National Tennis Academy is much more than a simple school or a training facility.

The strength of character that our student-athletes develop are skills that will prepare them for life.

Achieving results is our priority.

***As with all our NTS/NTA programs, if any disruptions or any reasons occur due to COVID-19, no refunds will be given, only credits towards spring or summer programs***

Join the Team!

Mandatory Selection Tryouts:

Being selected to join our Academy is dependent on a number of factors including, but not limited to, motivation, general attitude, tennis level.


We will consider the following in assessing your profile:

  • Tennis tests (technical, tactical and mental)
  • Fitness tests
  • Academic (finding out if eligible)
  • Interview with student + Meeting with parents


  • Students must maintain C+ average
  • Ability to withstand significant physical training
  • School & Sports level allowing the student to target entrance (grade 5+)
  • Personal motivation and dedication to the project

All applications must be received no later than September 1. The number of spots in the Academy is limited to 8

Our school is for students who are serious about their studies and who can manage to travel while maintaining their marks at the same time.


And why you will succeed here:


Passionate and methodical coaches give players the ideal setting for a full training program. Students are supervised by caring staff.

The welfare of each and every student is our priority.

To excel in both academics and athletics we invest in quality time for the well-being of our students.


Each player receives customized training. The Academy’s method focuses on reinforcing the individual’s strengths. Armed with self-confidence, the player can work on improving the weak aspects of his/her game. Trust is a very important factor, and we absolutely need to create and maintain a trusting environment between the coaches and players. Customized training is the only way one can progress. Coaches rely on their technical, tactical and mental skills to adapt to the player’s needs.


From injury prevention to focusing on specific physical attributes and exercises, we test and analyze the profile of each player to activate a working plan which answers the needs of each player.


NTA will be working on a partnership with Daniel Nestor and Jesse Levine to bring world-class clinics to Ottawa. Our goal is to engage the kids with inspiring insights about high-performance athletics.


Supervision is provided to our student-athletes at tournaments throughout the season. Our coaches observe and encourage our players in every match, which enables a better understanding of the player and therefore a better follow-up of the goals set for the season. A precise debrief pre- and post-match is provided by the coach.

We will also travel as a team to many tournaments. We will also have fundraisers to reduce some of the costs that are associated with travelling out of town.


With NTA experience, we will help with US scholarship placement service. This is a successful pathway for our students who get to live and study for at least 4 years in the USA and play in a very high-level championship (the NCAA, NAIA, junior college). Without a doubt, the scholarship USA program is the best way to pursue a high-level sports project while benefiting from an intensive training structure and a top-level education.
